A 41-year-old woman has bludgeoned her flatmate to death with a hammer and dismembered his body after he killed her cat, Russian police have said.
Anastasia Kh, 39, allegedly cut up his remains with a handsaw before stuffing his remains into five plastic bags.
The unemployed woman has now been detained as part of a murder investigation.
Leg bones, ribs, one shoulder, parts of the victim’s pelvis and human skin were found in plastic bags
Blood spots from the dead man were found on the floor of the flat they shared in St Petersburg (pictured)
She took several journeys by a local minibus service to a site three miles away in the Kirov district of St Petersburg where she burned the bags in sand, say law enforcement.
They were found by a man walking his dog who called police.
Found in the bags were leg bones, ribs, one shoulder, parts of the victim’s pelvis and human skin, reported Komsomolskaya Pravda citing law enforcement sources.
‘She hit him with a hammer on the head,’ alleged a Russian Investigative Committee statement.
‘She also kicked him multiple times.
‘Having killed him, the woman suspect dismembered the body.’
The black bags, burned in sand, were found by a man walking his dog who called police and the woman has since been detained
