VOLGOGRAD, October 9 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian court on Wednesday sentenced to compulsory psychiatric treatment a former teacher who drafted a contract with the devil in her own blood, asking him to destroy a beloved pupil’s relationship.
Experts had earlier concluded that the ex-teacher, Lyudmila Osipova, was unaware of what she was doing and required psychiatric treatment.
The court ruled on Wednesday that she should “undergo forceful medical treatment in a specialized psychiatric ward.”
Osipova, a 41-year-old from the southern city of Volgograd, developed an infatuation with a man in his 20s while working at a computer literacy class several years ago.
She tried to reconnect with the judo enthusiast after quitting her job in 2009 by joining a social networking website and posing as a model half her real age, Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid reported Thursday.
When the man met Osipova in person, he immediately turned down her overtures, saying he already had a girlfriend that he intended to marry.
The woman tried to break up the relationship by signing a contract with the devil that stipulated exchanging Osipova’s soul for a younger body, 100 million rubles ($3 million), a Jaguar and a Volkswagen, a helicopter and some bodyguards.
After that scheme failed, Osipova turned to the underworld for help and hired a contractor to help end her prey’s relationship. In a recorded conversation with a police officer posing as a contractor, she tells him: “put her on drugs for a couple of weeks in order to develop an addiction, gang-rape her too, and film it for him to see.”
Osipova’s plan was for her target to be beaten so severely as to induce amnesia and then for her to nurse him back to health.
