A 31-year-old woman has stabbed her husband to death for complaining about the taste of her food. The incident happened in Penza region, Russia.
The 43-year-old husband, Slava Davydkina, was killed after complaining there was not enough salt in a dish his wife served their guest.
It was reported that Evgenia Davydkina stabbed the husband 35 times with his angling knife in the presence of their four-year-old child when he was sleeping.
After repeatedly stabbing him, she woke the male guest and asked him to call an ambulance. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene.
Mrs Davydkina told police that her husband accused her of not putting enough salt in the food because she did not love him.
The Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement that “during the interrogation, the accused explained that this was not the first conflict in their family.
“In her words, the spouse always acted as the initiator of the quarrels.”
Local residents have criticised the decision to allow the confessed murderer to remain at home under house arrest looking after the child.
The dead man had been previously married and had a 19-year-old daughter by his ex-wife.
The exact dish the wife cooked was not specified in the report.
