A woman was burned to death after she confessed to sleeping with her former lover on their wedding night.
Ivan Kuzmin of Russia, was arrested for setting his new wife on fire because she had sex with a former boyfriend on their wedding night.
The woman, 27-year-old Veronika Filippova, was allegedly consumed with guilt and confessed to her groom that she had an affair with a former boyfriend after Kuzmin passed out drunk during their wedding reception.
Kuzmin, 30, responded by dousing her with alcohol while she slept. When she woke up she tried to escape, but Kuzmin set her alight with a lighter.
Filippova was rushed to a hospital with burns on over 80 percent of her body, but died within a few hours. Kuzmin was arrested and admitted to killing Filippova. He now faces 15 years in prison.
Sadly, Filippova did not know about her husband’s violent past. Kuzmin never told his bride that he had served ten years in prison for the attempted rape and murder of a girl.
Sergey Domnyshev, an investigator in the Kirov district of Volgograd, confirmed that Kuzmin was convicted of attempting to rape a girl under 18 years old, and then tried to destroy evidence by setting the apartment on fire with the girl still inside.
Filippova leaves behind a 10-year-old son from her previous marriage. May she rest in peace.
