A Russian husband chopped off his wife’s hands in a brutal punishment for thinking that she was cheating on him. According to The New York Post, 26-year-old Dmitry Grachyov flew into a rage and tortured his wife Margarita on December 11, after accusing her of being unfaithful to him.
He apparently took her to a forest near Moscow and began by hitting her fingers with an axe as a cruel form of interrogation. She denied the allegations of having an affair. The Daily Mail shares that there were text messages from a male admirer but that has not been widely reported. Not convinced of his wife’s honesty, Dmitry then chopped one hand off, followed by another. He then took his bleeding wife to the hospital and turned himself in.
The couple has been married for five years and they have two young sons together.
