A bridegroom has been killed with an axe after an occult ritual ended in a violent argument.
Now there is something you don’t hear every day.
Anton Shabanov, 33, an engineer, had turned to black magic to fix his failed marriage after his wife, Lyubov, 29, left him only one year after their initial wedding, reports the Russian Investigative Committee. That sounds reasonable. for sure back magic has to be cheaper than divorce.
The newlywed had split and lived separately which caused much upset for Anton.
Shockingly he went to convicted fraudster Nikolay Ivanov, 32, to perform a ritual involving burying the possessions of the couple in a nearby forest.
Honestly though, would you trust some one to do some black magic for you if they HADN’T been convicted of something?
As the ritual commenced, Ivanov ridiculed the other man as well as insulting his estranged wife, a court heard. “Black magic voodoo witch doctor was rude and insulting, would not recommend 1 star”
The split from his wife had caused Anton much heartbreak
A fight between Ivanov and Anton had begun when Ivanov grabbed an axe and killed the groom, striking him in the head and neck.
Not a believer in repeat customers apparently.
He later fled the scene of the crime, leaving the dead body covered in branches.
He was later detained by police and confessed to the killing of Anton.
A court jailed Ivanov for nine and a half years and was ordered to pay £20,700 in damages.
