A Russian woman has allegedly killed her husband by suffocating him with her buttocks after she sat on him during a row.
The woman, Tatyana .O, was charged with murder after she sat on her husband, Aidar, and refused to let go of him until he “begged for forgiveness”, it has been reported.
The man’s daughter saw her father pinned face down on the bed and ran to call for help from neighbours in Novokuznetsk, Russia, according to evidence in the case.
A female neighbour came in, but decided it was a domestic dispute which the couple would solve.
Also, it was reported that the neighbour did not get involved because Tatyana said she wanted to “calm him down” after they had been drinking.
However, Aidar died soon afterwards and Tatyana screamed, causing the neighbour to rush back.
The neighbour called an ambulance but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A medical examination later found that the man died from “asphyxia” – blocking the “respiratory system,” as his face was wedged into the mattress, with the woman sitting on his neck, “using her legs so he could not lift it”.
The wife “strangled husband to death with her buttocks after drinking too much alcohol”, Life reported.
At a first trial, a murder charge was dropped and Tatyana was convicted of causing death by negligence.
The court heard that she had no intention to kill him her husband.
She was sentenced to 18 months of corrective labour and ordered to pay around £2,000 in “moral damages”.
But the Investigative Committee announced this week that it is pressing for a new murder charge against the wife.
The woman had been angry “after drinking heavily” and “as soon as the man lay down on the bed, burying his face in the mattress, she sat on his neck, while holding his head with her legs so that he could not lift it.”
After he stopped showing signs of life, “the accused, frightened, shook him and shouted at him to wake him up”.
The murder suspect “weighs more than 100 kilograms”, the investigative committee said.
