A TRUSTED babysitter took a six-month-old boy into the woods and strangled him because she was about to be dumped, say Russian cops.
Viktoria Aimetdinova, 23, is accused of carrying out the “revenge attack” on learning the baby’s older brother was going to leave her.

The alleged devil-worshipper killed the child in the Russian town of Zavodoukovsk while the child’s parents were attending a funeral, according to detectives.
After a frantic police search, she was reportedly found carrying the child’s corpse in nearby woodland.
A video shows her in handcuffs after she was promptly detained over baby Bogdan’s death.
The boy’s mother Natalya Gafner told detectives she trusted the babysitter and knew her well.
But she added she had recently had a major row with her boyfriend Andrey Gafner, the tot’s half-brother.

She posted: “Antichrist is the one, and it’s me. I see the devil in everyone.”
