The mother of the 3-year-old boy who, police believe, was thrown off a 52-story New York apartment before his father took his own life, is now speaking out.
Svetlana Kanarikov said, in a statement, that the father, Dmitriy Kanarikov, killed the 3-year-old out of "spite" and that she was "nervous" about him being unsupervised with the child. The two parents were in the middle of a messy divorce. (Via WITN)
Svetlana reportedly had temporary legal custody of the child, Kirill. She was supposedly uncomfortable with visits between the father and son, but, during a Dec. 5 court hearing, she softened her stance and allowed three-hour-long visits on Sundays.
