The girl was reported missing by her parents after going for a bike ride and failing to return home in August 2018.

Police and hundreds of volunteers conducted a massive search operation in the area but found nothing.

A year later Sinitsyn, who lived in a neighbouring village, was arrested in connection with Maria’s disappearance.

He was indicated as a suspect after forensic odorology (also knows as science of smell ) experts discovered his and the girl’s scents on a sex toy that had been found not far from the place where Maria was last seen, according to local media.

The man, who is said to have confessed to killing the child during the investigation, denied his guilt later in front of the judges saying “he had been forced to make the confession”.    

However, according to the local Investigative Committee, Sinitsyn attacked the girl on a deserted road when she was riding past him on her bicycle.

He dragged the teenager in the woods, committed acts of sexual nature against her and strangled her, investigators said.

After that, Sinitsyn drowned the victim’s bicycle in a swamp and hid her body, detectives said.

The man “refused to show where he hid the schoolgirl’s body”, according to the court’s records.  

A law enforcement official said to local media: “The court has decided that the evidence found by the investigation proves the defendant’s guilt.

“His involvement in the commission of the crime is confirmed by expert opinions, information about telephone connections, testimonies of witnesses, specialists and experts, protocols of examinations and searches, as well as other materials of the case.”

Yesterday, the Nizhny Novgorod region court charged Dmitry Sinitsyn with murder of a minor and sentenced him to 19 years in prison.  

The defendant, previously convicted for rape of a child, pleaded not guilty during the hearing.

Previously he was sentenced to 14 years in jail and released on parole six weeks before Maria’s disappearance, say Russian media.

Maria’s father Vladimir Lozhkarev told: “The defendant’s guilt is proven. I agree with the punishment he received.

“Society is shielded. Now they have to keep on looking for the body.”
