The Russian Government, through its Embassy in Mexico and its Consulate in Tijuana, joined the legal defense of Anastasia Lechtchenko , 19, who allegedly murdered and dismembered her mother and sister.

Gabriel Celestino, Lechtchenko's lawyer, said that the Russian government will monitor the legal process during the trial.

A Russian legal team is analyzing Anastasia's case, because tomorrow a Mexican judge will determine whether she should be released or formally arrested.

The Russian consular staff will be outside of La Mesa Prison, where the young Russian-born is detained.

Days ago, Lechtchenko said that she was tortured and raped until she confessed to the crime.
