Scene of the crime: Lyalya Tupikova, from Astrahan in southern Russia, admitted stabbing her husband Khalpik to death after he forgot her birthday
Lyalya Tupikova was very upset when her husband, Khalpik, forgot her birthday before heading out to work. She waited at home and was hoping that when he returned he would bring a gift or something to show that he remembered her birthday. He had nothing in his hands and did not realize that it was his wife’s 45th Birthday.
She had even gone to the trouble to cook dinner for the couple and made it very romantic. The husband was still unaware as to why his wife had gone to such trouble, and this infuriated her. While they were eating, she had grabbed a knife and stabbed her husband in close proximity to his heart.
Shortly after this, she confessed that she did murder her husband, who died of severe blood loss after the stabbing. Birthdays are important, remember them or be killed. Although, now her birthdays won’t be very important since they’ll most likely be spent behind bars.
