After years of enduring domestic violence, a wife strangled her husband, beheaded him and cut off his penis then feeds it to her dog.
Police arrested an Ukrainian wife identified as Maria after she had strangled her husband to death then mutilated his body to put an end to years of domestic violence.
The 48-year-old woman was said to have beheaded her husband and hacked off his penis, then fed his severed penis to dogs in the village of Obariv in the north of the country.
She is quoted to have told the police that ‘she was suffering domestic violence for ages and murdered her husband to put an end to it’ and that ‘it was the only way out’.
According to reports, Maria attacked her spouse Oleksandr, 49, in their bedroom after he came home from night shift work and fell asleep in the early hours of August 23rd. She strangled him to death with her bare hands before grabbing an axe and hacking his head off, police said.
After that Maria used a kitchen knife to chop off the victims genitals and fed the organ to her dogs, local media report. She then tried to cut the body into pieces but failed, investigators said.
Her neighbour, Nadezhda Opanasiuk claims Maria rushed out of her family’s house to the street covered in her husband’s blood. Mrs Opanasiuk said to local media:
‘Her hands, feet and clothes were in blood. ‘She said, ”I am in trouble. I’ve killed my husband. I did not believe her. I thought they had a quarrel and she might have hit him. I went to see if he needed medical help. When I walked into the room, I saw his mutilated body. The bedsheets were soaked with blood.
If found guilty, Maria is likely to spend up to 15 years in prison even after the Police confirmed she made full confession at the scene of the crime. She is now in Police custody and has been charged to court.
