Wife chops off husband's penis and feeds it to dogs to end years of alleged domestic abuse

A Ukranian woman chopped off her husband's penis and beheaded him after years of purported domestic abuse.

Identified only as Maria, she tried to cover up her tracks by feeding her husband's penis to dogs in their hometown of Obariv.

The MailOnline reported that the 48-year-old decided to put an end to her suffering on the night of August 23 when her husband Oleksandr, 49, returned from work. She did so by strangling him as he slept.

Once Oleksandr was dead, Maria beheaded him with an ax before removing his penis with a kitchen knife.

Police said that she was "constantly suffering physical and emotional abuse and did not see another option to end her misery."

After unsuccessfully attempting to chop up the remainder of her husband's body, Maria ran from her house, covered in blood, and was spotted by a neighbor, Nadezhda Opanasiuk.

In an interview with local media, Opanasiuk said: "Her hands, feet, and clothes were [covered] in blood. She said, 'I am in trouble. I've killed my husband'.

"I did not believe her. I thought they had a quarrel and she might have hit him. I went to see if he needed medical help. When I walked into the room, I saw his mutilated body. The bedsheets were soaked with blood.

I asked her, 'Where's his head?', and she replied, 'There, in the sack'."

Although understandably shocked by what had happened, Opanasiuk was able to alert authorities, and Maria confessed to her husband's murder at the scene.

Police spokesman Vadim Artiukhovich said: "The suspect confessed in full at the scene. She was charged with murder and taken into custody.

"The woman said that she was constantly suffering physical and emotional abuse and did not see any other option to end her misery.

Neighbours say they, in fact, saw the husband beating her up and chasing her with an ax a lot of times.

However, the woman has never reported the incidents."
