The results of "more than 70 complex forensic examinations" will be used against the five suspects accused in the killing of the Russian politician and former Deputy-Prime Minister, Boris Nemtsov, declared spokesperson of the Russian Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin, in Moscow on Tuesday.

The evidence includes "situational, audio and video [evidence], psychological, molecular-genetic [evidence] and other complex forensic examinations. Also witness testimony and confrontations between the witnesses and the accused, as well as items that were seized during a search of the residencies of the accused are also among the evidence," according to Markin.

Nemtsov was killed on February 27 when an unknown assailant in a white van fired a series of shots, hitting the former politician several times. Police and emergency services rushed to the scene of the crime on Bolshoi Moskvoretski bridge near the Kremlin's Vasilyevski Spusk, but Nemtsov was pronounced dead before treatment could be administrated.
