Jealous groom, Stepan Dolgikh, murdered his wife by beating her to death when he began to believe she was cheating on him.

Drunk and in a jealous rage, Dolgikh dumped the body of Oksana Poludentseva, 36, into a ravine.

The murder occurred during a wedding party at a private house and guests were reportedly too scared to intervene in the situation, but after the murder they alerted police to the shocking incident.

Chief investigator Kirill Petrushin said:

“He began to punch and kick her outside the house. He grabbed her by the hair, hit her, pushed her out into the street, where he also continued to strike her body and head.”

Dolgikh had a previous conviction for murder, but was befriended by Oksna while in jail.

It is believed Oksana felt she could reform the convicted murderer and a friend said

“She truly loved him, and was waiting for release.”
