Roman, who urged Helena to leave Russia for Spain three years ago after meeting her on a dating site, also maintained he was ‘gay’ and never had a relationship with the mother-of-one.

The alleged murderer reportedly asked the judge if he had also murdered 11-year-old Anastasia due to his amnesia of the event.

Court declarations revealed Roman had given Anastasia his phone and requested her to call police before he barged into Helena’s room to murder her while she was sleeping.
