Investigators said Tuesday that two sisters who killed their father after years of abuse should face murder charges, in a case highlighting Russia's dire record on domestic violence. Three Russian sisters -- Krestina, Angelina and Maria Khachaturyan -- stabbed their father Mikhail to death in July 2018 after suffering years of beatings and sexual assault. There is no specific law against domestic violence in Russia and activists have long accused authorities of turning a blind eye to abuse.
