A husband allegedly stabbed his wife to death as his two young kids watched on in horror by the side of a road.
In shocking video footage, a man can be seen kneeling over what appears to be a body while allegedly stabbing it with a blade.
The horrific ordeal took place at the side of a road in front of the couple’s two daughters.
Alexander Alexeev, 31, has been accused of fatally stabbing the victim following a row about an alleged affair.
He is accused of killing his wife, Oxana, 30, after saying she had been cheating on him for the last couple of years, according to the news site Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP).
The incident was filmed in the district of Satkinsky in the western Russian region of Chelyabinsk Oblas.
The couple were travelling in their SUV with their two young daughters, aged 4 and 2, to attend a dentist appointment for one of them.
On their way to the city of Satka, the couple are said to have become embroiled in a row before Alexeev allegedly beat and stabbed his wife to death.
In footage, a man can be seen cleaning the blade with a rag after the person filming approaches him.
Meanwhile, the suspected killer’s two children are heard calling for “papa” as a man walks towards the vehicle they are in.
While the man paces up and down, the cameraman walks towards the victim’s body and the footage ends.
Police spokesperson Vladimir Shishkov said the suspect waited at the scene for the police to arrive and voluntarily handed himself over.
He reportedly confessed to the crime while paramedics could only confirm his wife’s death.
Alexeev is being held in pretrial detention as the investigation continues.
According to KP, the two young girls have been handed over to their maternal grandmother.
