Prosecutors served Natella Natanova, 39, the sister of Mazoltuv Borukhova, with a notice of indictment Friday during a court appearance. On March 5, Natanova was charged with witness tampering for allegedly warning Dr. Daniel Malakov's brother, Gavriel, to back off during the criminal case of her sister Mazoltuv Borukhova, who was charged with arranging the Oct. 28 murder, the DA said."You should know if you talk, you will be the next to go," she allegedly told Gavriel Malakov in Russian at the intersection of 108th Street and 65th Avenue, according to prosecutors.It was unclear if the grand jury's indictment, which was sealed as of press time, involved the tampering charges or new indictments. The indictment will be formally read to Natanova, a stay-at-home mom who is free on $75,000 bail, on March 19, a spokeswoman for the DA's office said.Daniel Malakov, 34, a Bukarian Jewish Uzbek immigrant, was shot twice in the chest while he was dropping off his then 4-year-old daughter Michelle at the Annadale Playground on 64th Road and Yellowstone Boulevard to meet Borukhova, his ex-wife. Borukhova, also an Uzbek immigrant, had lost custody of the girl days earlier during a bitter custody battle with Malakov.Ma
