Highlighting the dangers of improper hygiene, a man in Russia’s Stavropol region was killed and dismembered by his wife for refusing to take a shower, local investigators said on Tuesday.
The murder was the result of a badly escalated family argument, the regional branch of the Investigative Committee said on its website.
After a heated debate, the 26-year-old woman hit her 35-year-old husband twice with an iron to the head and then strangled him with a piece of cord, the report said.
She then dismembered the body with a knife and scattered the pieces in a local forest, the report said.
The incident took place last weekend, investigators said. They did not identify either the victim or the suspect, but said the woman was arrested and could face murder charges, punishable with up to 15 years in prison.
