Marina Kapustina Biography
A firefighter is accused of stabbing his pregnant wife to death before killing her daughter while trying to protect her mother.
Konstantin Kapustin, 25, is said to have stabbed his new friend Marina Kapustina, 30, and Nikol, five, 25 times with a kitchen knife in Russia.
The terrible incident occurred two weeks after the couple married at the family home in the northwestern city of Vologda.
Kapustin had introduced themselves as a loving couple, but began drinking several days after their marriage, a court said.
After Marina had had enough of her drinking, she began to ignore him.
One video shows Kapustin telling detectives, “I came home and she didn’t say hello. I got mad. She went into the kitchen and took the biggest knife.”
It is said that Kapustin, apparently drunk at the time, attacked Marina with the gun in front of little Nikol.
The man hit her wife seven times with the knife and then assaulted the girl, who ran to her mother and protected her from her with her body, investigators said.
Kapustin stabbed the young woman 18 times before spraying gasoline on the two victims and leaving them at home while they tried to destroy the evidence.
Police spokeswoman Natalia Letenkova said: “Investigations showed that the victims were killed by multiple stab wounds to the upper body. The woman was pregnant at the time of the crime.
“Forensic scientists also said the girl was still alive when the suspect set fire to her house.”
Kapustin confessed to killing his mother and her baby during police questioning.
Marina Kapustina’s grieving father, Mikhail Maklakov, told local media: “I lost my daughter and my granddaughter.
“All over the world I loved her more. Now I don’t know what to live for. “”
He faces life in prison if he is found guilty of murder, committed with particular cruelty. The process continues.
