A murder suspect, Marina Kokhal, 36, accused of killing her rapper husband, Andy Cartwright, colluded with her mother to dismember his body, Russian police investigators now allege.
According to investigators in Russia, Marina allegedly confessed to cutting up the corpse of her husband, but claims he died of natural causes. Police have now arrested her mother, Elena Kokhal, 67, and allege she colluded with her daughter to kill him after rumours of an affair surfaced.
Police claim Marina bought an insulin drug and administered an overdose to the rapper. They also claim she had sex with his corpse, drank his blood and fed his body to rats.
According to police, Andy’s body parts were discovered in Marina’s fridge, with others in dustbins waiting to be disposed of.
Iis also alleged Marina and her mother, Elena, fed Andy’s fingers to rats in the garden.
In a statement, Russian police said: “The investigation collected a sufficient evidence base indicating that the murder was planned by the accused [Marina Kokhal] in advance.
“Shortly before it was committed she purchased a medicine from a city pharmacy which she later used to commit the crime.”
Investigators also allege Marina and her mother, Elena, fed Andy’s fingers to rats in the garden.
Elena was arrested as she lives in the same apartment as her daughter.
Elena’s lawyer, Irina Skurtu, called the mother’s detention “the last throw of the dice” by detectives who had no proof against her client.
Skurtu also claims Marina was quizzed on “disgusting” and “sick” claims, including asking whether or not she tasted her husband’s blood.
After police alleged she “had sex with the corpse” of her husband, Marina continued to “categorically” state that she did not murder Andy.
After rumors of an affair surfaced, Andy’s alleged lover, Nadia Romanenko was contacted.
She told cops Maina had threatened her by claiming her husband had AIDS.
She said the she and Andy met “every day” and that Marina didn’t know about the affair until recently.
Nadia said: “Our sexual relations took place at my apartment
“I specially rented a flat near his house. “We met every day, and Kokhal did not know about it.”
The investigation continues.
