[ 2010/04/28 | 17:54 ]

Today, the Kentron and Nork-Marash District Court sentenced Petros Temiryan and Karen Dallakyan to life imprisonment for the murder of American-Armenian businessman Nazaret Berberian.

Nazaret Berberian went missing on April 25, 2009, after leaving his house in Yerevan. His body was found in a gully on a stretch of the Yerevan-Sevan highway. Police forensic experts say he had been drugged and strangled to death.

Petros Temiryan, it turns out, was a friend of the murdered Berberian, while Dallakyan, arrested in Moscow, was an acquaintance of Temiryan. The RoA Police state that a third person implicated in the murder is still on the loose but that law enforcement has prevented his leaving the country.
