Belov told a court that he killed his entire family during a ten-minute fit of rage because his 32-year-old wife Julia, gave his son a foolish haircut.

Belov first killed his wife, and then all of her children. Belov then went to the house of his 73-year-old mother, and stabbed her 21 times.
If convicted, Belov faces life in prison. Police found the dismembered children in their home after they failed to show up in school.
