MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian judge on Tuesday found dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko and two co-defendants guilty in an acid attack that nearly blinded the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet last January.
After a month-long trial, the judge said Dmitrichenko and two co-defendants had intentionally caused grievous bodily harm to the victim, Sergei Filin.
State prosecutors have asked for a nine-year prison sentence for Dmitrichenko, 29. Judge Yelena Maximova is expected to issue a sentence later on Tuesday.
