Former policeman sentenced in killing of Russian journalist
MOSCOW —Six years after the death of crusading Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, a former senior police officer was found guilty in Moscow City Court on Friday for his role in the slaying and was sentenced to 11 years in prison in a trial that left many questions unanswered and the journalist’s family and lawyers bitterly dissatisfied.
