Moscow court sentences gangster who faked own death to life in prison

Russian Gangster Sergei Butorin, who is suspected in at least 20 murders, was sentenced to life in prison by a Moscow court.

Butorin rose to power in the 1990s. After authorities began cracking down, he allegedly had plastic surgery and faked his own death, including organizing his own funeral in Russia.
