A Russian man hanged his naked ex-wife with a hair dryer cord on her balcony after noticing that she was wearing a new engagement ring, according to a report.
The man, identified as 38-year-old Ilnar, was charged with murder after confessing to the crime, East2West News reported, citing the Russian Investigative Committee.
Ramzia Gimranova, 32, an accountant who has a 6-year-old daughter with Ilnar, was found hanging by her father in the city of Kazan. She also had been beaten.
The couple divorced last year after he refused to stop gambling despite building up loan debts of £5,000, about $7,000, according to local reports.
A week before her death, Gimranova pleaded police for protection for herself and the girl, saying the man was stalking her.
“Having learned that the victim intended to remarry, the attacker came to her house, then beat and strangled her on the balcony,” the committee said in a statement. “He has confessed his involvement in the commission of the crime in full.”
Gimranova’s friends say that while she accepted the ring from her fiancé, she was not yet ready to remarry because of the trauma of her relationship with her ex-husband.
