MOSCOW (BNO NEWS) — A Russian court has sentenced a man to more than two dozen years in prison for assaulting a Gypsy fortune teller who predicted that he would be jailed, local media reported.
Gennady Osipovich was told by the female fortune teller that she saw a “state-owned house” in his future, which is a Russian euphemism for jail, The Moscow Times reported, citing the country’s Investigative Committee.
The woman managed to escape the man, but Osipovich stabbed two unidentified witnesses to death during the assault, which happened in October.
Osipovich was sentenced to 22 years in a maximum-security prison.
