The Moscow City Court opens on Tuesday hearings in a case of former police chief Denis Yevsyukov, who killed two and wounded seven in a south Moscow supermarket in late April.
Anna Usachyova, a spokeswoman for the court, said over 70 Russian and foreign journalists have been accredited for the hearings.
Yevsyukov, who then was a police major, took a taxi to the Ostrov supermarket in southern Moscow shortly after midnight on April 27, where he shot the driver dead, before walking into a store and opening fire on customers.
Yevsyukov's killing spree sent shockwaves through the police force, prompting the dismissals of a number of top police officials. The government has promised to introduce immediate measures, including tightening discipline and staff checks.
