They tortured and disfigured the body of Viktoria Averina, 17, with broken bottle. The body of Viktoria, known as Vika, was found at an abandoned building site in the Russian city of Arkhangelsk.

Her face had been torn with pieces of broken glass and she was ‘cruelly tortured’ before being strangled to death.

Initially, police believed a male ‘maniac’ was behind the brutal killing but now two former school classmates, both 16, have been detained on suspicion of murder.

The teens, named only by first names Lina and Irina, because of their age have confessed to killing their close  friend.

A state investigator said: ‘According to the young girls, the victim thought she was more beautiful than her friends.

‘During the police interrogation, the girls explained that the victim allegedly abused them because of this.

‘They did not like such behaviour.’  The girls said.

The two suspects lured Vika to an abandoned building site under false pretenses where they attacked her, said a statement from the Arkhangelsk regional investigative committee.

One of the alleged killers held Vika while the other ‘passed her objects with which the hit the victim’, it is alleged.

They ‘broke a bottle against the head of the victim’ and ‘cut her face with smashed glass, and then strangled the victim’.

They went back home after the murder and expressed ‘horror’ when her body was discovered, it is alleged.

Vika – who was studying at college as a chef – was ‘arrogant because of her bright and attractive face’.

The investigator said: ‘All three girls are from socially normal families.’
