(Scroll down for video) A man became angry that a woman rejected his advances so he killed her, police in Italy said.
Rome Police said that they fatally shot the man moments after he beheaded the housemaid from Ukraine.
35-year-old Federico Leonelli, was shot on Sunday morning, after killing 38-year-old Oksana Martseniuk.
According to the police investigation, when Martseniuk rejected Leonelli’s sexual advances, he took a butcher knife and cut off her head.
Leonelli had lived in the house for several months as a guest of a colleague. A few days ago, Martseniuk warned the homeowners that Leonelli was playing with knives.
When police arrived at the scene, Leonelli threatened them with the butcher knife before he was killed. About five shots were fired.
Leonelli was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died. A sister of Leonelli, slammed police for using a gun on her brother, saying she cannot understand why police used their guns when he only had a knife.
