A woman was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing her husband by cutting off his hands and feeding them to her dogs, police in Spain said.

Mallorca police said that they have arrested 46-year-old Svetla Batukova, after being accused of mutilating her husband, 65-year-old Horst Hans Henkels.

Batukova was charged with one count of murder.

According to the police investigation, on Sunday, Batukova drank alcoholic beverages and did drugs before getting into an argument with her husband.

She grabbed a knife and cut off his hands. She then fed his hands to her dogs. Police officers arrived at the couple’s home located on Bella Vista Street.

Henkels was found lying on the bedroom floor, and was pronounced dead. Batukova was found sitting on the stairs, and she was incoherent.

Investigators believe that Batukova suffered a mental breakdown before attacking her husband. The couple had been married just several months, and there were several reports of domestic incidents at the home.
