Aleksey Khobotov..
Chikatilo's parents were both collective farm labourers who lived in a one-room hut and who received no wages for their work, but instead received the right to cultivate a plot of land behind the family hut..Throughout his childhood, Chikatilo was repeatedly told by his mother Anna that prior to his birth, an older brother of his named Stepan had, at age 4, been kidnapped and cannibalized by starving neighbours, although it has never been independently established whether this incident actually occurred..Nonetheless, Chikatilo recalled his childhood as being blighted by poverty, ridicule, hunger, and war..In 1943, Chikatilo's mother gave birth to a baby girl, Tatyana.. Chikatilo's father had been conscripted in 1941 and as such, could not have fathered the child.. It has been speculated the child was conceived as a result of rape committed by a German soldier..His sister later recalled that in spite of the hardships endured by her parents, their father, Roman, was a kind man, whereas their mother was harsh and unforgiving toward her children..At the onset of puberty, Chikatilo discovered that he suffered from chronic impotence, worsening his social awkwardness and self-hatred..Chikatilo was unable to sustain an erection..After several months, Chikatilo found a job as a communications engineer in a town located north of Rostov-on-Don...

Accosted while walking home from an ice-skating rink.. On 22 December, Chikatilo lured a 9-year-old girl named Yelena Zakotnova to an old house which he had secretly purchased; he attempted to rape her but failed to achieve an erection.. When the girl struggled, he choked her and stabbed her 3 times in the abdomen, ejaculating while stabbing the child..whereupon he strangled her into unconsciousness before throwing her body into a nearby river..

Kravchenko had a watertight alibi for the afternoon of 22 December: he had been at home with his wife and a friend of hers the entire afternoon, and neighbours of the couple were able to verify this...Despite his retraction, he was convicted of the murder and sentenced to death in 79.. This sentence was commuted to 15 years' imprisonment (the maximum possible length of imprisonment at the time) by the Supreme Court in December, 1980.. Under pressure from the victim's relatives, Kravchenko was retried and eventually executed for Zakotnova's murder in July 1983...
