Zaur Dadaev, one of five suspects in the killing of Boris Nemtsov stands in a court room in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, March 8, 2015. Russian news agencies said Sunday one of the suspects in the killing of leading opposition figure Boris Nemtsov has admitted involvement in the crime. Judge Nataliya Mushnikova said that Zaur Dadaev made a statement confirming his guilt, according to the reports. They did not specify his alleged actions. Dadaev is among five suspects detained in the Feb. 27 killing, when Nemtsov was shot while walking on a bridge near the Kremlin. Another man, Anzor Gubashev, was charged in the killing, and a hearing for three other unnamed suspects was under way, court spokeswoman Anna Fadeeva said earlier Sunday. Dadaev and Gubashev were identified as suspects by Federal Security Service director Alexander Bortnikov a day earlier. Bortnikov gave no details of how the men were detained or specifics on how they were connected to the killings. (AP Photo/Ivan Sekretarev) (The Associated Press)
