A 63-year-old horror grandma allegedly killed her "tyrant" son by striking him on the head with a large frying pan and then using a power saw to cut him up in more than 70 pieces, The Sun reports.
Lyudmila R, from Russia, who was apparently provoked after her son repeatedly abused her and made her life "hell", was spared jail time despite being found guilty of murder. During an interrogation, she alleged that her 42-year-old son, who cannot be named for legal reasons, attempted to rape her on one occasion “after drunkenly mistaking me for his ex-wife." According to her, she had complained to the police of his actions multiple times. However, authorities did "no more than speak to him."
The alleged killer was found carrying “suspicious” black bin liners from her flat to a waiting taxi in Khabarovsk, southeast Russia, before she was detained by the police. Authorities were summoned to the scene after neighbors detected the “smell of a dead body” from her apartment. Upon being apprehended, she told officers that her son had recently come back from a hunting trip and that the bags contained "rotten bear meat"
However, subsequent police examination discovered human hands and feet in a bag. “For about three hours, the woman kept telling us the story about bear meat. But then she realized that it was nonsense and told the truth," a police source said. When her son was thrown out by his wife and came to live with her, the killer claimed her life had been "turned upside down."
She finally snapped on a day in August after almost a year of her son acting "wild" and behaving like a "tyrant." On the fateful day, the father-of-two allegedly attacked and abused her after messing up the bathroom in her apartment. “I took a frying pan from the kitchen and hit him over the head," she said.
After he collapsed, she kept his body on the floor for a day and repeatedly stabbed the lifeless corpse. “I knew that I had to get rid of his corpse somehow and I was afraid of calling the police," she later said.
Lyudmila explained in an extraordinary testimony to a local news source how she used an angle grinder power tool to disembowel and dismember her son into 70-plus parts before severing his head and cutting off his genitals. She continued: “It was as if my mind switched off. I was doing everything like a robot. I went to buy a power saw, because my hands were aching and I could not use a knife. I covered the floor with plastic, then I cut off his legs, arms, and head. I disemboweled him, sliced off his penis and took out inner organs.”
She then went on to explain how she threw his severed body parts in the trash can. “I had to remove muscles tissue from bones, carefully putting the cut off pieces into a plastic bucket, container, and a basin," she said. "Then I packed each into plastic bags and tied them up. I put his head, feet, hands, and main body part – spine with ribs – separately. I did not shed a single tear while doing all this. I was in a peculiar state of mind, as if moving in a fog.”
While grinding her son with the power tool, she hurt her hand and had to go to the hospital. It was during her hospital stay, which lasted a week, that the human remains in her flat began to smell.
Neighbors were disturbed by the appalling smell and phoned her about it. She then proceeded to discharge herself, go home, and get rid of the remaining body parts. “My neighbors called the police, and they looked into one bag. They saw severed feet and hands. That was it," she said.
This week, the woman was convicted of killing her son "while in a state of extreme emotional disturbance." Although she was spared jail time, she has been barred from leaving her city for the next 23 months. Also, she cannot change her address without permission and is subject to a night curfew.
“To be honest, we have not had such a case in the past 15 years," an official for the State Prosecutor said.
