Mar-16-14  Kurochi: IM from Lithuania. In January 2014 he killed his own wife with a knife in front of their two children. Local TV reported that he kept repeating the phrase "I'm a genius" while commiting the crime and the number of wounds on deceased wife's body was around 64 - same amount as the number of squares on a chess board.

Prologue (in Luthuanian)

In short: After Vytautas Šlapikas lost his job the year before his ailing mind deteriorated quickly and he displayed severe behavioural problems in public and also at home. Due to adjunct circumstances the small family ended in serious financial problems when all income was lost. This vicious circle kept adding tension and frustration nonstop. All until the former chess champion became utterly delusional - spending all his days and nights 'preparing' for another court hearing, only two weeks before he would commit the brutal murder with one knife in each hand.


The Vilnius Regional Court, after examining a criminal case in which he was accused of extremely brutal murder of his wife at the age of 41 found that he killed his wife in a state of innocence (see The stabbed woman was taken to the hospital but died here.

Experts who conducted a psychiatric examination found that the accused had an acute psychotic disorder which prevented him from understanding and managing the nature of his actions when committing the crime.

Medical experts stated that Šlapikas needs the application of coercive medical measures, inpatient monitoring in a specialized mental health care institution under strict monitoring conditions.

'As long as the person is kept there, the arrest is lifted, and all further steps in the proceedings will depend on how he feels and what his state of health will be,' the court spokeswoman said.
