Anna Stavitskay, a lawyer who represented Politkovskaya's family at the trial, looks on during a news conference in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012. The relatives of a slain Russian journalist are contesting a deal that was made between one of the accused in the case and the authorities investigating the case. While six individuals were originally charged for organizing and carrying out the 2006 murder of Anna Politkovskaya, a sharp critic of the Kremlin's policies in Chechnya, none of them are now sitting behind bars for the crime.
