Father of big family kills wife and commits suicide in front of children
The man stabbed the woman 20 times.
Citizen of the Astrakhan region’s Kharabali woke up at night on November 12, as someone was knocking on the door loudly and severely. When the man opened the door, he saw his neighbor. The latter was looking at him and had a crazy look in his eyes.
- I’ve killed my wife, - he whispered.
- Stop joking like this, Nursultan! - The man just shrugged it off. He thought the neighbor had been a little bit drunk.
The guest left, and the man decided to check whether something had happened. The neighbors’ door was opened. When he entered, he saw a horrible picture. His neighbor committed suicide, and his wife was lying in a pool of blood. Their children - 2 girls and a boy - were crying in another room.
Nurgaliev’s family lived in peace. They were both 27. Guldara was unemployed: she was on maternity leave with the 1-year-old daughter. The middle daughter went to a kindergarten. The elder brother was 6 years old and started going to school this year. The husband had a job, he worked off the books though: he made apartment improvements and made a little extra money at a construction site. Money was scarce - just like in all families. On November 3 - when it was his wife’s birthday - the man had written her a touching poem. Everything was all right and almost perfect, but Nursultan’s jealousy. There were rumors it had been for a reason.
In the evening, on November 12, the couple quarreled. The man accused his wife of infidelity, and she started kicking him out of the apartment. After that, the citizen of Asrtakhan grabbed a kitchen knife. There are 20 stab wounds on the woman’s dead body counted by criminalists. The man committed suicide the same night. It all happened in plain view of their children who had woken up due to the loud quarrel.
At the present time, psychologists are working with the children. The 1-year-old baby does not remember anything, however her elder sister and brother will hardly ever forget the horrible massacre. The children were taken by relatives of the deceased couple.
“At the present time, investigators are determining details of the incident. The couple is known to have been sober at the moment of the killing,” the Astrakhan region’s office of investigations of the Investigative Committee of Russia told KP-Volgograd.
*The last name of the deceased has been changed out of concern for the children.
