A Moscow judge who presided over a high-profile racially motivated murder case, sentencing members of a skinhead gang to up to 23 years in prison in February, was shot dead on Monday at his apartment building in the Russian capital.

AFP - A top judge from Moscow's city court who presided over a high-profile racist gang murder case was shot dead Monday inside his apartment building in the Russian capital, news agencies said.
   
"Unknown assailants shot Eduard Chuvashov dead in the entranceway of an apartment building at 24 Strelbishchensky Street and fled," a police source was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.
   
Chuvashov in February sentenced members of a skinhead group called the White Wolves to up to 23 years in jail for murders motivated by ethnic hatred.
