They also stole her phone?

“The two friends, both 20, drowned the girl in a bath before cutting up and cooking parts of her body, the investigative unit of the prosecutor general's office said in a statement. The pair then stole her phone, mp3 player and clothes. Florist Maxim Glavatsky has been sentenced to 19 years in prison, while his unemployed friend Yury Mozhnov has been sentenced to 18 years.”

If you have read this far, you are probably wondering what value-added commentary anyone could possibly offer for such grizly facts. Frankly, I was wondering the same thing myself.

A couple of things come to mind, however. First, what in the name of tarnation could persuade these two to compound their homicide, cannibalism, and ungentlemanly conduct with petty thefts of phone, mp3 player, and clothes? Were these homicidal cannibals also transvestites?

Second, how in the name of tarnation did the justice system determine Mozhnov's crime to be 1-year's worth of sentencing less abominable than Glavatsky's? Is the sentencing formula for homicide and cannibalism as precise as such a difference seems to imply?

Third, even if the sentencing for such horrific crimes is not as precise as it may seem, how is it possible that these miscreants will be out of jail before age 40?
