Usuricide

Crime and Punishment was translated to English in 1885; and yet, the crime Raskolnikow is guilty of doesn't have a specific name (at the time of the post, Google returned no results).

I'm amazed that no one had thought of it before.

Upd: Another instance of usuricide in Russian (Soviet) literature is in Leonid Solovyov's The Tale of Hodja Nasreddin.
