KNICKERS, who carried a 14-year-old girl the night she was allegedly raped and murdered by a 16-year-old boy, had traces of her stepfather's semen, as a court heard.
Viktorija Sokolova, 14, was beaten to death in West Park, Wolverhampton, before her killer had sex with her body.
Stepdad Saidas Valantinas & # 39; s seed was also found on a teenager's white jeans, which was found along with the underwear in a trash can on the park grounds.
Valantinas emphatically denies that she sexually assaulted her stepdaughter when she was questioned in court.
Mother Karolina Valantiniene, a factory worker, and her husband Valantinas gave evidence in the trial of a 16-year-old male adolescent.
Mr. Valantinas told the jury that he did not know how his DNA lay on his stepdaughter's garment.
The boy, who can not be named because of his age, is charged with the rape, murder and sexual assault of a corpse after his body was found partially clothed in Wolverhampton's West Park on April 12.
Adam Kane QC, representing the defendant, asked Mr. Valantinas, "Is the real reason why your DNA on Vikorina's underpants is the way it is because you found it in the park and you sexually assaulted it?"
He replied, "That's nonsense, I deny it completely."
Mr. Kane then asked, "Was the consequence of the sexual assault that a violent robbery followed, did you kill her?"
The farm worker replied, "I did not do that, that's nonsense."
When Ms. Valantiniene was asked by Mr. Kane, "Do you want to protect your husband's involvement in the deadly attack on Victoria?" She replied, "No, that's nonsense."
When asked, "Did you kill your daughter," she answered, "No."
Then she asked if her husband had killed her daughter, she replied again: "No".
Jurors at the Wolverhampton Crown Court had previously heard that the schoolgirl was exposed to a "terrible" violence that a prosecutor described as "terrible."
It is alleged that the boy used a hammer-like weapon to break the victim's skull in a pavilion known as the "black house" before sexually assaulting her body.
The case of the crown is that he met with Facebook Messenger the young man in the West Park of the city and had his pants changed before he left the scene.
Ms. Valantiniene described on Thursday evidence of how her daughter had become "restless" as of summer 2017.
The jurors heard that Vikorija's school attendance had dropped. She repeatedly ran away from home to go out late with other teenagers, to drink and to smoke cannabis.
The victim's mother told the court that the situation had become so severe that Victoria was sent to her biological father in Ireland in December 2017 after leaving the family home on Mostyn Street in Wolverhampton several times.
An incident followed on December 15, when one of the windows in the family home was smashed.
That day, Ms. Valantiniene spoke in front of a 999 answering machine: "I'm scared in my own house, you see.
"I have a very big problem with my daughter.
"She is a very worried child, very worried.
"She smokes, she sleeps with boys and she smokes Ganja.
"She drinks and I do not know what to do because she is a very bad kid."
The teenager returned to Wolverhampton in February 2018, and her mother said the relationship was initially "ideal."
But two weeks later she ran away with her parents, saying she had fallen back into her "old ways."
When Viktorija was out late in March late in the evening, her angry mother burned some of her clothes and took her iPhone as a punishment.
Viktorija then took her mother's bank card, pulled out 250 pounds and triggered a physical confrontation with Mrs. Valantiniene.
Nevertheless, her mother told court that Victoria could be affectionate, adding that she believed that the problems were only "temporary."
