Yavne resident Andrey Lushchenko was convicted on Monday for the murder of his friend, 28-year-old Rishon Lezion resident Sergei Kolsnikov and of raping his friend’s mother in 2010.

The judges refused to accept Lushchenko’s claims that he was drunk and could not remember any of the events, which took place over two days and based on the mother’s testimony and physical evidence from the crime scene found him guilty of murder, rape, false imprisonment and obstruction of justice.
