EKG evidence frazzles slain dentist Daniel Malakov's wife Mazoltuv Borukhova on the stand

A Queens prosecutor used medical records Wednesday to strike at the heart of a doctor's claim that she had nothing to do with murdering her estranged husband.

Mazoltuv Borukhova, accused of paying Mikhail Mallayev $20,000 to shoot her hubby, Daniel Malakov, testified that the accused triggerman and his wife visited her Queens office in May and October 2007.

Confronted with purported electrocardiograms of the Mallayevs that were time-stamped Aug. 21, 2006, Borukhova claimed she hadn't programmed the machine correctly to give the right date.

Borukhova's composure began to unravel when prosecutor Brad Leventhal produced four dozen EKG's of other patients taken from her files - all of which matched the dates of their doctor visits.

Flustered, Borukhova claimed Mallayev got an "emergency EKG."

"He was complaining of chest pain," she testified. "I did not have time to put his name and information into the EKG machine."

Borukhova also admitted that she did not dial 911 or dispatch Mallayev to the hospital.

Borukhova, 35, and Mallayev, 51, deny involvement in the October 2007 slaying. She claims the flurry of calls they exchanged just before the killing were largely about buying a house in an
Atlanta development.

Leventhal said Borukhova was putting the finishing touches on a plan to kill Malakov and regain custody of their now 6-year-old daughter, Michelle.

"You wanted to prevent your husband from having a relationship with his little girl and he would not stand for that," said Leventhal.

"No," Borukhova replied.

Malakov, 34, was shot while delivering Michelle to a Queens park for a supervised visit with Borukhova, who is related to Mallayev. The girl lives with an uncle in Queens.
