A Russian newlywed was recently arrested for a brutal act against her husband that involved their Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Svetlana Batukova, 46, was accused of murdering her German-born husband, 66-year-old Horst Hans Henkels, at their home in Spain, and then feeding his flesh to the dog until Henkels died.
On Apr. 1, Batukova, a self-proclaimed cocaine addict, was high when she stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife.
While Henkels lay on the floor bleeding to death, his wife sliced off pieces of his arm flesh down to the bone, and then fed it to her dog — all while Henkels was still alive.
Batukova, who regularly posted pictures of her dog to social media, did not even bother to call the police until hours later. And, when police did arrive, they found her casually standing next to a pool of her husband’s blood.
Police arrested the woman and found that she was both high and drunk at the time of the incident.
Henkel’s wife faced murder charges, but it has not been revealed whether the case will go to trial or for how long she might go to prison.
Officials are still investigating whether Henkel’s wife drugged him before the attack. Preliminary autopsy results showed that Henkel did not suffer any defensive wounds. Henkel had also recently had surgery on his trachea, leaving him speechless and unable to call for help.
Officials also do not know the motive of the heinous crime but said that the couple was known to quarrel, and police had been forced to intervene on many an occasion.
