U.S. citizen Peggy Hilt was sentenced on Thursday to 25 years in prison and ten years of suspended sentence for killing her adopted daughter from Russia
The sentence was announced in the district court of the city of Manassas (Virginia), situated not far from Washington. Two years ago the American couple Peggy and Christopher Hilt adopted Viktoria Bazhenova from Irkutsk. The girl got the American citizenship and a new name – Nina Victoria. In July 2005 she died in hospital in Manassas, where the Hilt family arrived to celebrate Independence Day with their relatives. When the girl was brought to hospital, Peggy maintained it had been a fall accident. However, medics called the police after finding signs of bodily injuries, and the woman was arrested. At one of the court sessions a detective said that several days after the death of Nina Victoria Peggy Hilt confessed that she had got angry with the girl, lost temper and attacked the girl in their house in Wake Forest. She shook the girl, threw her on the floor and started kicking her in stomach and in the back. On the following day, the family drove to Manassas. After a four-hour trip the girl lost consciousness and died. Post-moretem examination results specified severe abdominal kicks as the cause of the death. Psychiatrists examining Hilt said she was mentally competent and could face the trial. On November 9, 2005 she was officially accused of an intentional murder of Nina Victoria. Already 14 children, adopted in Russia, have been killed by their foster parents in the USA over the past ten years.
