SOVIET DOCTOR IS SLAIN BY MUGGER IN QUEENS

A Soviet cardiologist visiting the United States with his wife was shot to death by a mugger in Queens early Sunday, police said.

Dr. Armady Novikov, 47, and his wife, Jalina, 42, were returning from dinner with another couple when two young men tried to rob them in the hallway of the other couple's Rego Park apartment. He resisted when Mrs. Novikov was menaced by a gun as the gunmen took the women's purses, and during a struggle, Novikov was shot once in the chest, police said.

The two robbers fled.
