Convicted murderer Roman Zadorov has been ordered released to house arrest ahead of a retrial in the killing of Tair Rada.
Zadorov, who has been jailed since he was convicted for the 2006 murder of the 13-year-old schoolgirl, has always maintained he is not guilty.
If the prosecutors do not appeal the decision to release Zadorov within 48 hours, he will exit jail with an electronic ankle bracelet that tracks his location.
Last month, the State Prosecutor’s Office announced a retrial for Zadorov. Rada’s murder case has long gripped the country, due both to the brutal way in which she was killed and continuing claims by some that it was not Zadorov who committed the murder.
