A couple has been charged with murder after they reportedly “went on a four-day lockdown drinking binge” leaving their baby twins alone without any food.

Their 16-week-old son, who was in a coma, tragically died at a hospital after the couple’s “gravely emaciated” children were found by their grandma.

The couple’s daughter is still fighting for her life at a hospital in Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka county.

Mother Margarita Yanayeva, 23, is said to have “lied” to friends her babies were in hospital with coronavirus, according to reports.

In fact, she and partner Alexey, 35, from Vilyuchinsk, left them locked at home all alone while they went partying for four days, according to law enforcement.

Their son died from “starvation” and his little twin sister is desperately weak in intensive care with fears for her health.

“In the course of four days they were not feeding the children, and did not arrange alternative care for them,” said an investigation source.

Instead they “subjected them to hunger, did not ensure hygiene, leaving the minors in a socially dangerous state”.

The children were eventually found by a grandmother who became concerned at not being able to reach the couple by phone, despite their region being under lockdown.

The couple faces up to 20 years behind bars if found guilty

She immediately called the police.

The couple faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted of the murder of the helpless twin boy.

They also face charges over failing in their parental duties, and subjecting their children to danger.

It is unclear who is caring for the baby girl at this time.
