A death row inmate in Siberia, Andrei has received two death sentences for strangling and cooking his cell mates in prison. Maslich, a four-time convicted murderer, received his first death penalty in 1995 when he and another inmate strangled, cooked and ate a prisoner because they were bored.
He was sentenced to death again on December 26, 1996 for strangling his new cell mate after an argument and boiling his liver in a metal mug on a makeshift fire. Allegedly he cooked his cell mate in hopes of being declared insane and escaping execution for his first act of cannibalism. Maslich told the Altai regional court he cooked his cellmate, a double murderer, in hopes of being declared insane and escaping execution for his first act of cannibalism.
The crime was not discovered until the next morning, when a warder looked through the spy hole and Maslich nodded to his lifeless cellmate: "He will not be getting up today." The prison director assured the court that the food provided was good and plentiful: "Hunger was not the cause of this crime." Whatever his reasons were, we pity Andrei's next cell mate.
