Alexander Pichushkin was convicted last month of 48 murders over the last 15 years in a park in the Russian capital that lent him his nickname 'the Bittsa Maniac'. The year-old had said he planned on killing 64 people — the number of squares on a chessboard — although he later said that he would have carried on killing if he had not been caught.
In court today the jury said that there were no mitigating circumstances in the former shop assistant's murders, and rejected a plea from defence lawyers, who were seeking a year jail-term, to clear him of 18 killings. Pichushkin, who claimed to have murdered more than 60 people, was said to have battered his victims to death with a hammer before dumping them in a sewage pit. Many were older homeless men, who he lured to their deaths with promises of free vodka. He was caught when his last victim, a woman, left his mobile phone number with her boyfriend.

Pichushkin has so far confessed to killing 62 people but investigators say they do not have sufficient proof to believe everything he says.
Investigators suspect the man does suffer from a certain mental disorder after all. At times he is very depressed and taciturn, at times he is quite cooperative and willing to talk to investigators, Komsomolskaya Pravda wrote. Alexander Pichushkin, a loader at a small grocery store in southwestern Moscow, was arrested in June of this year on suspicion of killing his colleague.
