A 15-year-old Russian boy obsessed with killing in computer games confessed to stabbing a student to death - because he wanted to know what real murder felt like, say police.
Alexey Maximov knifed Daria Evdokimova, 21, a dozen times soon after she had withdrawn money from a cash machine in Moscow, it is alleged.
He confessed to stabbing her in the neck, eyes, head and chest, said police sources.
She died on the spot.
He had taken a kitchen knife out “to replay a scenario from his favourite computer game”, reported Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper citing law enforcement sources.
A video caught her last moments as the boy followed her, said police.
