A man in the southwest Siberian
A man in the southwest Siberian city of Omsk is due to stand trial after being accused of killing a hairdresser over the cost of a haircut, the local prosecutor's office said on its website on Thursday.

In October last year, Vadim Tikhonov tried to leave a hairdressing saloon without paying for a haircut. The hairdresser tried to prevent him from doing so by standing in front of him.

In response, police say, Tikhonov grabbed a hammer and hit the hairdresser with it, after which he took a knife and stabbed her 12 times. The hairdresser later died in hospital.

Police later established that Tikhonov had left the hairdressing saloon without paying as he felt the price of the haircut - 100 rubles or $4 - was "too high."

Tikhonov later admitted his guilt to police during questioning.
