This surveillance camera caught Dimitry, the suspect, riding around the area before and after the murder.

Alla Kamenev was killed while walking home in Brighton Beach almost three years ago. Her ex-husband was soon tagged as a suspect. Dimitry Kamenev, 79, went on trial yesterday for allegedly killing Kamenev over their bitter separation.

In October 2011, the victim was walking back from a nail salon when she was shot four times in the chest on Sea Breeze Avenue and Brighton 2nd Street, three blocks from her home. It was the middle of the day and Alla was set to leave for London that same day with her new lover.

The Daily News reported on the trial:

“This is the first vacation of her entire (new) life,” Assistant District Attorney Josh Charlton said in Brooklyn Supreme Court. “She sees the last thing she ever wants to see.”

That thing was the elderly defendant – whom she divorced in 2007 after 43 years of marriage – before he pumped four bullets into her chest, the prosecutor alleged.

Dimitry was captured on surveillance video riding a girl’s bike before and after the murder.

When interviewed by cops, Kamenev had stated “‘What’s done is done’ – and that’s the last thing the defendant said in English,” the prosecutor told jurors. There was also a witness that identified him as the shooter.

The trial is ongoing.

What seemed like a random shooting by a bicycle-bound gunman in Brighton Beach on October 20 may have actually been a domestic dispute, and authorities have arrested the victim’s ex-husband.

Dimitry Kamenev, 76, is accused of opening fire from a girl’s bicycle on Alla Kamenev, 65, at Sea Breeze Avenue and West 2nd Street on Thursday. Cops say it was Kamenev who was filmed on a surveillance camera riding a girl’s bike near the spot just minutes before the shooting.

The woman’s ex-husband, Kamenev was charged with murder and ciminal use of a firearm on Tuesday. Witnesses aided in the investigation, identifying Kamenev as the suspect.

According to an NBC report, the couple had been separated for several years.

Surveillance video has surfaced of the gun-wielding cyclist moments before fatally shooting 65-year-old Alla Kamenev in Brighton Beach last Thursday.

According to News 12,

Officials say the man was riding a bicycle when he pulled out a gun and shot 65-year-old Alla Kamenev near Sea Breeze Avenue and West 2nd Street.

Police describe the bicycle as a girl’s bike with a red basket.

The victim, who lived three blocks from where she was killed, was found lying on the ground at 11:50 a.m.; she was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital.

Police are still investigating this matter and are asking anyone who has information regarding this case to call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
