Woman strangled and killed husband before beheading him and hacking his genitals off
After reportedly suffering years of domestic abuse, a woman finally snapped when she killed her husband and chopped his penis off and fed it to their dogs.
According to reports, the wife strangled her husband to death before beheading him and hacking off his genitals.
Police say the suspect, identified only by the name Maria, fed her husband’s severed penis to dogs in the village of Obariv in Northern Ukraine.
The 48-year-old woman told police “she was suffering domestic violence for ages.”
She said she “murdered her husband to put an end to it,” adding that “it was the only way out” of the abuse.
According to the Daily Mail, 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 23.
She strangled him to death with her bare hands before grabbing an ax and hacking the man’s head off, police said.
After that Maria used a kitchen knife to chop off the victim’s genitals and fed the organ to her dogs, local media report.
She then tried to cut the body into pieces but failed, investigators said.
Covered with her husband’s blood, Maria rushed out of her family’s house to the street where she was spotted by Nadezhda Opanasiuk, a woman living next door.
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.
“I asked her, ‘Where’s his head?’ and she replied, ‘there, in the sack’.”
According to Mrs. Opanasiuk, she felt quite sick but managed to reach and alarm other neighbors who called the police.
Maria confessed to murdering her husband at the scene and told cops all the details before being arrested.
Police spokesman Vadim Artiukhovich said: “The suspect confessed in full at the scene.
“She was charged with murder and taken into custody.
“The woman said that she was constantly suffering physical and emotional abuse and did not see any other option to end her misery.
“Neighbours say they, in fact, saw the husband beating her up and chasing her with an ax a lot of times.
“However, the woman has never reported the incidents.”
Maria’s son Viktor Fesianov cannot forgive her for what she did.
“I know she is my mother. But I do not want to see her anymore,” he told local media.
Maria faces up to 15 years in prison if found guilty.
The investigation continues.
