The unrepentant killer told a court that he believed his new bride had been cheating on him.

Dolgikh had a previous conviction for murder but the wife – who got to know him while he was in prison as a penpal – believed she could tame him.

‘He was jealous of her with one of the male guests,’ said Petrushin.

‘It seemed to her husband that she had behaved incorrectly, which caused a scandal. All the rest were afraid of him, so they tried to intervene, but were rebuffed.’
