Biography of Oksana Poludentseva
Who is Oksana Poludentseva?
A jealous groom has been jailed for 18 years for beating his new wife in front of shocked guests on their wedding day.
Stepan Dolgikh, 35, beat Oksana Poludentseva, 36, to death and dumped her body in a ravine in Novosibirsk, Russia.
The stubborn killer told the court he believed his new girlfriend cheated on him.
Dolgikh had been convicted of murder before, but the woman who knew him in prison as a pen pal believed she could tame him.
Witnesses said he started kicking and beating the mother after he became “jealous” of her interactions with another guest at the wedding party at his private house in Chike Village.
He allegedly accused his new wife of “misconduct”.
“He started hitting her and kicking her out of the house,” chief investigator Kirill Petrusin said.
He has been attacking her in the house.
“He grabbed her by the hair, hit her, pushed her into the street and continued hitting her body and head.” When she looked lifeless, he “threw her into a nearby gorge”.
It happened just hours after the couple exchanged vows at their wedding.
Other guests were reportedly afraid to intervene but called police.
The boyfriend was arrested on the spot by the Russian National Guard. Peter Rushin, a senior regional investigator with the Russian Investigative Committee, said Dolgih had confessed to the murder.
“He beat her for a long time in front of witnesses and hit her vital organs, torso and head,” he said.
He said he “completely admitted his guilt during the investigation” but showed no remorse.
“I was jealous that she was with a male guest,” Petrusin said.
“In the eyes of her husband, he misbehaved and it caused a scandal. The rest were afraid of him, so they tried to intervene but were pushed back.”
A friend said: “She really loves him and she is waiting to be released.”
The man had previously been convicted of murder and robbery, but Poludentseva believed she could help improve her life.
“The deceased knew her criminal record,” Petrusin said.
“They met while she was serving time for a previous offence.”
He added: “She doesn’t think that when she’s drinking or just in a fit of rage, someone like him crosses the line and commits a serious crime.”
