Tatiana Pupishina and her boyfriend Yevgeniy Gavrilov are accused of beating little Nikita to death before allegedly stuffing the body into a plastic bag and chucking it in a river.



A mom and her boyfriend have been charged after allegedly killing her seven-month-old baby son and throwing the body into a river in a plastic bag.



Pupishina, 24, is accused of disposing of the body before claiming the baby had been kidnapped.



Tatiana Pupishina, 24, and her partner Yevgeniy Gavrilov, 29, are accused of beating little Nikita to death at their home.

The horrific events unfolded in the city of Chelyabinsk, south-central Russia on October 17.

Reports say the child was sleeping in his bed when Gavrilov, who police say was drunk at the time, allegedly collapsed on his crib and broke it down.

Nikita woke up and started crying after falling out of his broken bed and landing on the floor, it is reported.

After the boy started wailing, Gavrilov allegedly went into a rage and attacked him.

The man is accused of hitting tiny Nikita hard on the head several times causing his death, police said.

The child's body remained in the apartment for the next three days before Pupishina and Gavrilov got rid of it, it is alleged.

The pair are accused of putting the corpse into a plastic bag, taking it to another part of the city, and throwing it into the Miass river, investigators said.

To prevent the bag from floating up, they put stones in it before drowning it, it is alleged.

Pupishina and Gavrilov are also accused of putting Nikita's clothes in several bags and throwing them in the river as well.

After getting rid of the body, Pupishina allegedly went to a police station and claimed Nikita had been kidnapped.

However, during an interview, detectives claimed they quickly found out she had made up the story to cover up the crime.

On Friday, Nikita's body was raised to the surface by divers after the mother told the police its whereabouts.
