Russian Historian Found With Woman's Severed Arms In Backpack 'Enters Plea Bargain Deal'

Police later found the decapitated head and body of a woman in Professor Oleg Sokolov's flat in St Petersberg, Russia, alongside a saw covered in blood.

A court on Monday will decide whether to arrest the historian, who was being treated for hypothermia in a hospital.

He has worked as a technical adviser to European television broadcasters on films depicting the Napoleonic era, and he was made a knight of the Legion of Honour in France in 2003.

But the historian reportedly confessed to killing his lover "accidentally" following an argument.

Sokolov then planned to make his way to the Peter and Paul Fortress, a popular tourist destination, in an attempt to dramatically commit suicide Sunday dressed as Napoleon, according to the Guardian, which cited local reports.

Both the professor and his deceased lover studied French history and co-authored a number of works.

Students described him as both a talented lecturer who spoke French and did impressions of Napoleon and as a "freak" who called his lover "Josephine" and asked to be addressed as "Sire", AFP reported.

Russian Emergency rescuers and police investigators conduct searches on the Moika River, in Saint Petersburg, on November 10, 2019, following the murder of a woman that implicates Russian historian Oleg Sokolov.

"When the iron warmed up, he brought it to my face, so that I could feel its heat coming from him, and began to threaten that it would disfigure me for the rest of my life", the girl reportedly said in a police statement in 2008.

Sokolov was a senior member of the Russian Military-Historical Society headed by Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky.

TASS said the human remains belonged to another person, presumed to be a man, and that police were working to establish the identity of that person.

Mr Sokolov was also member of the French-based Institute of Social Science, Economic and Politics (ISSEP), an academic institution founded by Marion Maréchal, the niece of Marine le Pen, France's far-right National Rally party leader.

"We learn with horror. the atrocious crime of which Oleg Sokolov is guilty.", it said.
