Russian serial killer who recorded his victims on a chessboard was convicted of 48 murders by Jury n Wednesday.
The jury took less than three hours to convict Alexander Pichushkin of the killings, most of which occurred over the course of five years in a park in southern Moscow. He was also found guilty of three attempted murders.
The judge, Vladimir Usov, read the verdict for one hour, while 33-year-old Pichushkin, standing inside a reinforced glass cage, leaned against the wall and stared at the floor.
Prosecutors were expected to recommend a sentence, and the judge was then expected to set a date for sentencing.
Russia has imposed a moratorium on the death sentence but has not abolished it.
Pichushkin boasted of killing 63 - one short of filling up the chessboard - but prosecutors were able to find evidence only for 48.
