Walter B, husband allegedly drugged his wife Ekaterina and then put her body in a bag in an evil attempt to get custody of their daughter.
In the German city of Bremerhaven, a case containing the fragmented remains of Ekaterina, 32, was discovered floating on the river.
The Bremen Regional Court has charged the woman’s husband, Walter B., 46, with her murder.
Regarding the claims against him, he has not responded.
According to Bild, Ekaterina’s body washed up on the riverside in March.
Her ten-year husband Walter B, who claimed that his wife had fled, came under suspicion.
And now, several months after the woman’s passing, the 46-year-old is facing murder charges.
The prosecution contends that the suspect injected diazepam into his wife’s drink before strangling her while she slept.
He is suspected of having dismembered her body and wrapped the removed organs in foil and trash bags.
The suspect allegedly put them in a bag before throwing it into the ocean, according to the indictment.
The man allegedly beat his wife, who repeatedly sought help from a women’s shelter before her murder, according to information provided to the publication.
The problem appears to have become worse when Ekaterina, a Russian native from Saint Petersburg, filed for divorce and announced that she intended to travel back to her native country with the couple’s six-year-old daughter Viktoria.
The suspect even grabbed the woman’s bank cards and instructed her not to meet anyone, according to the woman’s mother Svetlana, 53, who spoke to the publication.
The man’s goal, according to the prosecution, was to stop his wife from “having sole custody.”
