“This doctor arranged for her husband to be shot and killed at a neighborhood park swing-set in front of her and their 4-year-old child. This would allow her to hide in plain sight. She wore a secret camera to record the action.” (The prosecution)
In New York City a physician who hired her cousin to kill her husband in 2007 learned this week that her Murder conviction will not be overturned.
Doctor Mazoltuv Borukhova, age 42, had argued through her attorney that her trial was flawed; that the evidence presented was not sufficient to convict her of murder; that some evidence should not have been allowed at all and that her trial should have been separated from the trial of her cousin.
U.S. District Court Judge John Gleeson concluded in a hearing on September 10 in Brooklyn that the doctor had received a fair trial. “The evidence to support Borukhova’s guilt in this case was overwhelming, She had a strong motive to orchestrate the killing of her husband.”
Federal prosecutors were able to prove that the doctor had hired her cousin Mikhail Mallayev to kill her husband during a contentious divorce. They revealed that Doctor Borukhova came up with the scheme to have Daniel Malakov shot and killed October 28, 2007, at a playground in Queens, because she was irate that her husband had received custody of their daughter. investigators discovered that she had paid Mallayev $20,000 for the contract murder.
Borukhova, an internist, was found guilty in 2009 in the death of Doctor Daniel Malakov. She received a life sentence and now lives at a women’s maximum-security prison, Bedford Hills Correctional Facility.
Mallayev was also found guilty of premeditated murder and is serving a life in sentence.

Mazoltuv Borukhova attended Samarkand State Medical Institute in Uzbekistan and graduated in 1996. This entire group of social misfits is a sect of the Bukharian ethnic group, who immigrated en masse after the Soviet Union’s collapse and settled mainly in Forest Hills and Queens. Borukhova is the perfect example of what we call a Third World Assassin.
