Eight-year old girl who ran away from home after row with parents is r.a.p.e.d and killed

A girl who ran away from home following a row with her parents was r*ped and killed after being picked up by a married couple, say police.

Chilling CCTV footage shows eight-year-old Victoria (Vika) Teplyakova walking alone next to a busy road shortly before she was kidnapped.

The husband allegedly r*ped and strangled Vika with a plastic bag on Monday, the day she disappeared after leaving her family's home in Novoaleksandrovsk, Russia, and dumped her body near a lake in a forest.

Vika was missing for three days before a 32-year-old woman told police she and her husband had given the child a lift in their car.

The man allegedly told his wife he would “attack” the girl and “the woman did nothing to stop it because she was too scared of him”, according to a police source.

In the early hours of Friday, the woman showed police where Vika's body was hidden near a lake, said law enforcement.

Police have released pictures of the detained husband and wife suspects, named as Igor Dvornikov, who turns 49 this year, and mum-of-two Kristina Dvornikov, who turns 32 this year.

It is claimed the couple initially admitted picking up a girl, but gave a description that did not match Vika's.

Kristina Dvornikov initially denied abducting, abusing and killing the girl.

However, she later confessed during further questioning and said they picked up Vika on their way to a beach, according to law enforcement.

The woman told police her husband drove to a remote area and ordered her out of the car, and she didn't object because she was afraid of him.

She claims her husband r.a.p.e.d the girl in the car and then strangled her with a bag.

He allegedly carried Vika's body out of the car and dumped her on the shore of the lake.

Both the husband and wife have been detained as detectives launch a murder probe.
