- Sergey Burkaev, 16, and Konstantin Surkov, 17, & # 39; confess & # 39; about murders
- Duo is said to have raped one of the girls before she cut her throat
- The accused and their victims were at a house party in Kumertau, Russia
Two teenage boys reportedly killed a third of their deaths after arguing about their cell phones – and then killed four friends they were in contact with so they couldn't tell the police about the murder.
Sergey Burkaev, 16, and Konstantin Surkov, 17, allegedly raped their last victim before cutting her throat.
The vodka-fueled duo turned all five bodies into gasoline and placed them on a flat in southwestern Russia, prosecutors say.

The baby-faced couple apparently fled in a stolen car but were arrested by traffic officers, who saw that the vehicle was being driven irregularly.
When sentenced, Surkov and Burkaev are confronted with life in prison.
The police who interviewed them say that both teenagers have known the murders and rape. The only reason they gave for the massacre was that they were drunk, the officer added.
The heinous crimes allegedly took place at a house party in the small town of Kumertau in Bashkortostan on Friday night.
A friend of partygoers – 17-year-old Svetlana Frolova – said: & I just can't believe this happened. They were all so friendly to each other and always went out together.
& # 39; I was also invited (to the party) and really wanted to go, but my mother told me to stay and do my homework. I'm so glad I did. I can't understand why they did this. & # 39;
Arrested: one of the youngsters is told to lean his face down on a police car after stopping in a & # 39; stolen & # 39; vehicle
Boozed-up Surkov and Burkaev allegedly accused party partner Sidor Fokine 22 of stealing their cell phones.
When he denied it, they flew furiously and took out their knives. Then they stabbed him for the other guests – all of whom were female.
But they feared that the young women would identify them as the murderers. So they also used them, including 16-year-old Maria Sorokina, in whose flat they party, and 17-year-old friend Anastasia Selezneva.
Massacre scene: police officers in the apartment building in Kumertau where five young people were killed
The other victims were 21 and 22 years old. Anastasia was the last to be killed – and she was raped for her cruel death. The five bodies were set on fire in the apartment.
A police spokesman said about Surkov and Burkaev: & They were arrested while trying to escape in a stolen car. They were covered in blood and still drunk.
& # 39; So far they only said they did it because they were drunk. & # 39;
