Kostroma Resident Beaten to Death for Entering Wrong Door

A drunk man was beaten to death in Kostroma after he selected a wrong door in an apartment building and accidentally entered someone else's home, investigators said.

Late Saturday night the drunken resident entered an apartment where a military serviceman was visiting his relatives at that time, the local Investigative Committee said Thursday.

The serviceman "forced the man out of the apartment and, due to personal enmity, beat him up, dragged him out of the building and laid him in the grass by a road," the committee said in a statement.

The man died of his injuries, and the serviceman faces up to 15 years in prison for killing him, the committee said.
