Woman arrested over fatal pacifying buttock stab

A woman in Russia’s Far East is suspected of manslaughter after stabbing her ex-husband below his back with a knife and killing him. Earlier she often used sharp objects on the man’s buns to deflate his temper.

When the two lived together in the city Bolshoi Kamen in the Primorsky Region, they had an agreement: every time the husband got drunk and turned rowdy, the wife would stab him in his bottom. The sharp pain brought him back into his senses, reports Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

The technique worked badly last Sunday night, when the now-divorced couple met. In a quarrel, the woman reverted to her tried-and-true method and stabbed her ex twice with a knife. However, the blade severed an artery and the man bled to death before help could arrive.

For the intentional bodily harm which resulted in death, the unlucky woman faces up to 15 years in prison.
