    PITTSBURGH -- A University of Pittsburgh student was found dead at a home in a Pittsburgh neighborhood over the weekend, police said.

    Neighbors looked on at the crime scene from their front porches Sunday afternoon, CBS station KDKA-TV reports. "We didn't hear anything, and I didn't see anything," said neighbor Nancy D'andrea. She saw two people standing in front of the home who were clearly upset. "I feel so bad because I saw a guy and a lady, they were crying so loud I thought maybe they was her boyfriend or anything but after I realize I think was the mother and the father," she said.

    Police responded to the home just before 9 a.m. Sunday. That's when they found the 20-year-old woman on the on the second floor. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.
    The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the victim as Alina Sheykhet. Through Facebook, Sheykhet's brother said that he found out about his sister's death on his 25th birthday.


    Neighbors said the home was just rented out last month but don't know anything about the people who live there. Police are trying to find out anything they can. They do believe Sheykhet was murdered sometime overnight.

    Slain Pitt student had restraining order against boyfriend








    PITTSBURGH – A University of Pittsburgh student found dead in her off-campus home during the weekend had recently filed a protection from abuse order against her ex-boyfriend, who is facing rape charges in an unrelated case.


    Police on Monday said they were looking for 21-year-old Matthew Darby, who has not been charged in Alina Sheykhet's death.


    Sheykhet, 20, was found Sunday morning by her father, who broke down her door after she failed to answer calls. He was picking her up to attend a breast cancer awareness walk.


    Authorities said she died of head trauma, and the case was ruled a homicide.
    Darby was arrested Sept. 26 and charged with felony criminal trespass for allegedly breaking into Sheykhet's apartment
    .

    In her protection filing, she wrote that Darby climbed up the gutter of her home and broke in through the second-floor window.


    "He did this because I left him and stopped answering his phone calls," Sheykhet wrote. She described him as abusive, controlling and jealous.
    The protection order was granted.


    Darby was charged in March with rape, sexual assault and other charges in another county. He posted $10,000 bail that month, court records show.


    David Shrager, Darby's attorney in both cases, told the Tribune-Review it was too soon for him to comment.


    Sheykhet's father, Yan Sheykhet, told the Post-Gazette that he had dropped off his daughter at her apartment around 11 p.m. Saturday. On Sunday, he, his wife and daughter were to do the cancer walk together. Her housemates thought she still was sleeping when he arrived.


    "She didn't answer the phone. She didn't text us," he said. "So we tried to open the door. It was locked. I pushed the door and I found her laying on the floor."
    He called her "the best person in the world," and said she excelled at dancing, singing and gymnastics.


    Sheykhet was working toward becoming a physical therapist, her brother told WPXI-TV.
    Her Facebook page indicates she attended high school in a Pittsburgh suburb after moving from Ivanovo, Russia.


    The university issued a statement expressing sadness and extending "its deepest sympathies to the student's family and those who knew her."
    Counselors were available Monday for students who needed them.

    The ex-boyfriend of a college student found slain in the US state of Pennsylvania has been arrested and charged in her death, police say.

    Matthew Darby, 21, was charged with the criminal homicide of Alina Sheykhet, whose body was found by her parents in her bedroom on Sunday.
    Police had been unable to locate Mr Darby since Ms Sheykhet's death.
    A claw hammer and two knives that may have been used in her murder were found near her home, police said.
    Mr Darby was arrested early on Wednesday in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
    It comes a day after Mr Darby's attorney, David Schrager, urged his client to turn himself in despite a lack of charges against him.
