A husband is facing a 16-year prison sentence after he beat his wife into a coma, filming it so that he could show off to his friends.
Anastasia Oviannikova died six days after the horrific attack at the hands of Maxim Gribanov in Lebedyan, western Russia.
He struck her repeatedly to prove that he had her ‘under control’ when she told him that she wanted to leave him.
When she was taken to hospital, Anastasia, 28, was found to have severe bruising, internal bleeding and several broken bones.
She slipped into a coma and as a result of such horrific injuries she never woke up and died six days later.
