Lithuanian suspects in Belarus woman’s murder to be sent directly to Assize Court

The second remand order for two young Lithuanian men arrested for the brutal murder in Limassol last month of a 36-year-old woman from Belarus expires on Tuesday.

A police source told Philenews on Monday they will be sent directly to Assize Court for a trial.

The main suspect is Aistis Mikalauskas, 29, and the second is aged 24 and has not been named.

The motive behind the murder of Iryna Hurskaya, a mother of three and a divorcee, appears to be robbery.

Insiders said the main suspect, who admitted that he has a gambling addiction, was on friendly terms with the victim and he frequently visited her house.
