A tycoon's teenage son murdered his friend in a frenzied knife attack allegedly after losing a computer game.
Vasya Turda, 14, was accused of stabbing Vasya Pop 27 times and the victim was said to have been found with an 'almost severed head'.
The 15-year-old's neck was cut from ear to ear during the incident in Nizhnyaya Apsha, Ukraine, Vasya Pops's father told.
A “conflict” between the youngsters is believed to have arisen over the outcome of a computer game, said reports on the case citing law enforcement.
The court heard allegations the victim had provoked the attacker with “unlawful violence, systematic harassment or grievous insult”.
In an earlier dispute, it was claimed Vasya Pop had pulled down his pal's trousers in the presence of girls in a cafe.
Vasya Turda, as named in Ukraine, has been jailed three and a half years.
He had been given 5D computer games worth £19,750 by his rich father, a court was told.
The teen then invited his friend named as Vasya Pop to his family's mansion to show off his new hi-tech software.
But several hours later Vasya Pop’s neck was cut with a knife and reportedly had a total of 27 stab wounds.
The boy's body was found by his friend's grandmother.
“He stabbed my son with a knife,” said Mikhail Pop, the victim's father.
“He had 27 stab wounds, his head almost severed, his neck cut from ear to ear.
“This was the first strike, the experts told me.
“Then he abused the corpse.”
The grieving father branded the attacker “a maniac”.
“Turda attacked his mate when they played on a console on the second floor (of the mansion),” said one account.
Vasya Pop fled with blood pouring from his his badly wounded neck.
He ran down to the ground floor as Turda chased him wielding a knife.
Police pictures show a trail of blood was strewn through the large house.
Vasya Turda – whose father Vasily is a wealthy businessman – was convicted of “murder committed in the heat of passion” as they played computer games.
He was sentenced to three and a half years by a Ukrainian court.
But regional prosecutors are now demanding the sentence should be increased to 15 years, say reports.
