Woman kills her husband with killer-divan
A woman, who became a widow as she attempted to teach a lesson to her lazy husband, was convicted at a St. Petersburg court. The woman literally killed the man with a divan.
The court brought down a conditional sentence for the period of one year against Vera Lukyanova, 55, and found the woman guilty of involuntary manslaughter, Fontanka.ru reports with a reference to the press service of the St. Petersburg Office of the Public Prosecutor.
The tragedy occurred in the summer of 2008. The man had a hangover in the morning after he had drunk too much alcohol the day before. His wife was infuriated with her husband’s behavior. In a fit of anger she kicked the convertible divan, on which the man was resting, and the divan folded into two and gripped the man in a vice.
Forensic experts said that the man died instantly: the strong springs of the killer-divan broke the man’s ribs and even his spine.
