The 28 year old man, who was arrested in Telavi in the Kakheti region, admitted having carried out the murder, and is charged with premeditated murder.

The man has prior convictions.

The body of an elderly woman of about 67 years was found buried in a traditional ceramic vessel used for making wine, called a kvevri. She had been missing for two days when police found her.

According to investigators, the suspect broke into the woman’s house in the village Shakriani in the night of August 5. The owner saw him, after which he hit her in head with a blunt object. He hid the body in the cellar, burying it in the wine tank. Then he set the house on fire and ran away, investigators claim.
