He is now to undergo a psychiatric examination.
Yevsyukov, who was arrested following a bloody massacre in a supermarket, is charged with the murder of the victims, attempted murder of several people (including 7 who sustained injuries), and illegal possession of weapons. He may face up to 20 years in prison or can be jailed for life.
The news comes from a spokesman for the Investigative Committee of the Prosecutor’s Office Vladimir Marking, who gave a statement to the media on Tuesday.
According to him, “the motives of Yevsyukov’s criminal actions will be determined by the investigation."
The official added the arrested man “will undergo a medical examination, which will establish his mental health.”
Yevsyukov, who was head of a police station in Moscow, went on rampage on April 27. The bloodbath ended with two people killed and seven wounded. He was revealed to have used a gun that had been on the police wanted list for nine years.
