Aman from Luzino, a small Siberian village, was planting potatoes in his backyard earlier this year when he unearthed a human skull.
In shock, the panicked man ran to get his wife.
Cool as a cucumber, she told him, ‘Don’t worry – it’s my first husband.’
The 60-year-old woman explained that 21 years earlier her husband, 52, had c ome home drunk and abusive.
When he hit her, she’d killed him with an axe.
Needing to dispose of the body, she chopped him up and buried him in the vegetable garden.
She then told people he’d gone off to work and she had never seen him again.
‘Bury the remains and forget about it,’ she instructed her stunned, current husband.
But the man went to the police, who dug up the gar den and found even more bones.
The Russian Investigative Committee confirmed that the woman confessed to the murder, even obliging them with a re-enactment of how she dismembered the body.
During the investigation the woman was placed under house arrest and is now facing a maximum 10-year prison sentence.
