YouTuber Stas Reeflay locked pregnant lover out in freezing cold because her intestinal condition made her 'stink'
The YouTuber said Grigoryeva was suffering from an intestinal condition and he had forced her to stay outside 'so that she would not stink'
A Russian Youtuber, who is accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend on live stream, did so by locking her in the balcony in freezing temperatures "because she smelled", according to reports.
On the night of December 2, paramedics found Valentina Grigoryeva unresponsive at the house of Stas Reeflay, real name Stanislav Reshetnikov, near Moscow, who was later arrested on the suspicion of her death. To live stream the abuse, the 30-year-old accused allegedly locked Grigoryeva, 28, who was only wearing underwear, out on a balcony of his flat in sub-zero weather. A report by Baza media, as stated by The Sun, said Reeflay received $1,000 (£800) from a viewer to abuse his girlfriend during a broadcast on his YouTube channel.
According to MediaZone, the YouTuber then told viewers of the stream that Grigoryeva was suffering from an intestinal condition and that he had forced her to stay outside "so that she would not stink".
Reeflay allegedly kept shooting the cruel abuse even after the woman appeared “half-dead”. The disturbing video also showed the accused, whose real name is Stanislav Reshetnikov, carrying Grigoryeva back inside before attempting to save her. “Valya, are you alive? My bunny, what’s up with you? Valya, Valya, damn, you look like you are dead. Bunny, come on… tell me something. I'm worrying. Damn... I'm not feel her heartbeat,” Reeflay said on the camera before telling the audience: “Guys... No pulse... She’s pale. She is not breathing.”
The live stream then showed the man calling an ambulance for help as he said, “Wake up, Valya, I love you, wake up.” Reeflay did not shut the camera down even when paramedics arrived and declared Grigoryeva dead. Reeflay initially appeared tearful and remorseful about what had happened, but later declared, “What is there to regret? I didn’t really do anything.”
This was not the first time the YouTuber subjected the woman to abuse. Earlier, he allegedly pepper-sprayed all over Grigoryeva’s body as she lay screaming on the sofa. The victim’s friend said his live broadcast had been “full of cruelty” towards her. After the alleged tragedy, Reeflay was taken into custody and if found guilty, he could face up to two years behind bars.
Representing him, lawyer Yevgeny Kulagin said, "He repents of what he has done morally, but he does not admit guilt in criminal law, because there are no signs of a crime in his actions. Valentina Grigorieva died of a cerebral hemorrhage, and there is no causal relationship between his actions and the death that followed."
The Russian Investigative Committee said: “Information will also be checked about possible unlawful actions against the deceased by the young man in whose house the body was found.” Also, an urgent investigation has been launched into the case to find out if any other laws were broken in the live stream. Feminist activist Liza Lazerson slammed the YouTube as she said, “The woman dies on air - and the audience sends donations to the killer. This must stop. Such videos are calmly broadcast to the whole world, meaning something is broken. Until this is fixed, censorship is necessary.”
