Yesterday, around 17:30, a local resident reported to the Mukachevo police department that at home she had found her 85-year-old mother-in-law unconscious.
At the scene, police officers found out that the victim was a pensioner who lived with her eldest son. The man would often abuse alcohol, which would cause conflicts in the family. On that day, a conflict arose between them again. As a result, the 60-year-old son in a state of heavy alcohol intoxication began to beat his mother. After that, he went to another room and shut the door.
The daughter-in-law, who found the unconscious woman, called the police and an ambulance. The pensioner was taken to the intensive care unit of the Mukachevo District Hospital with severe head and face injuries.
Investigators of the Mukachevo Police Department opened a criminal investigation over the battery under Part 1 of Art. 121 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine – Intentional grave bodily injury.
