Police make arrest in Pussy Riot killings

The day after two women were found dead in a central Russian city, police have detained a man who confessed to the killings.

University Igor Danilevsky confessed to stabbing a 38-year-old woman he was dating and her 76-year-old mother.  It is said Danilevsky wrote “Free Pussy Riot” on a wall in the victims’ blood because he wanted it to seem like a “ritual killing.”

Three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison earlier this month for a “punk prayer” they held in February in Moscow’s main cathedral, asking the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Vladimir Putin.
