A man has admitted to killing his one night stand after she joked about the size of his penis.
Marina Kovalenko, 29, a mother-of-three, was strangled to death because the unnamed 25-year-old man was ‘humiliated’ by her comment about his manhood. The two met at a cafe in her village in Volgograd, Russia, and ended up having sex in a lock-up garage he rents, the man told the police. A police source said: ‘Afterwards the woman laughed at her lover over the small size of his penis.’ He told officers that the joke made him ‘insane’. The source added: ‘He strangled the woman and then took the body to a forest and buried her there.’
Friends of Marina reported her missing and police traced the man she had met in the cafe. At first the man, who has no previous convictions, said they had parted at a crossroad and she had gone home alone.
But CCTV footage proved that they went to the garage together – and that the woman didn’t leave alive. A spokesperson for The Russian Investigative Committee said: ‘Under the pressure of evidence, the suspect confessed how he killed the woman and also showed where he had buried her body. ‘He dug her corpse into the ground on the outskirts of the village, in the forest.’ The divorcee’s children, two girls and a boy, all believed to be under 11, are being looked after by their father. The 25-year-old faces up to 15 years in jail.
