Russian TV Presenter shot dead by Estranged husband, infront Of their 9 year-old Son


A glamorous Russian TV presenter was shot dead by her
estranged husband with an air gun as the couple’s nine-
year-old son watched on in horror, Dailymail has reported.

The woman identified as Zhanna Veber, 29, was gunned
down at close range by Anatoly Leontikov, 36, during a
row over custody of their son, Dmitry.

Ms Veber, a popular television personality in the Krasnodar
region of southern Russia died on her way to the hospital
after she was treated by paramedics.

Leontikov fled the scene with the couple’s son, taking him
to stay with his family before going on the run. He later
gave himself up to police.

Ms Veber split from Leontikov two years ago but the pair
were not officially divorced, reports claim.
He arrived at her house and they argued over his access to
the Dmitry, which Ms Veber had tried to limit.
Leontikov had been away working as a builder on
construction sites near Moscow and when he returned, he
had moved into her home for a while, but later left.
On December 26, he returned and ‘broke a window’ to gain
access, an unnamed friend claimed.

‘After she died, he took the boy to his relatives’, they added.
The friend said Zhanna was ‘ambitious’ and had ‘big plans
for her life’.
She ‘wanted to move to a big city’ while he ‘worked as a
foreman building houses’.

Leontikov was a former policeman who had a permit to
carry the air gun, the friend said.
Ms Veber’s station – Laba TV – ran a broadcast paying
tribute to her life.
