Bride Set On Fire By Groom After She Spent Their Wedding Night With Her Ex

Posted in: , ,

Veronika Filippova was soaked with alcohol and set on fire the day following their wedding by her newly-minted husband because she spent their wedding night with an ex-lover.

The mother-of-one had sought out her former partner because her new spouse had fallen asleep after getting dead drunk at their wedding reception. The 27-year-old had 80% burns on her body and died despite frantic efforts by doctors to save her.

Ivan Kuzmin, 30, her new husband, has confessed to murder after being arrested by police in Volgograd in southern Russia, according to police.

Daily Mail reports that the bride took 'revenge' on her husband after he passed out at their wedding party, but was later overcome with guilt and told him everything.

He responded by dousing her with neat alcohol - used to make homemade vodka - before igniting her in flames with a cigarette lighter.

'He set her on fire when she was sleeping, pouring alcohol on her and our Veronica is gone,' said relatives of Filippova's in an online posting.

The relatives, Olesya and Yuriy Prosin, also claimed that Kuzmin had hidden from his wife a previous conviction for attempted murder and attempted rape involving an underage girl, which led to a ten year prison sentence.

'He did not have enough of a conscience to confess to Veronika that he was in prison for trying to rape an underage girl and attempted to burn the apartment to hide the evidence. He is nothing but scum.'

Another version was that the couple went our for a beer the day after the wedding and this is when the row erupted leading to her being doused in alcohol and set alight.

The woman tried to escape, but her husband caught up with her and struck a lighter,' it was reported.
 Police confirmed that Kuzmin had confessed to killing his wife.

The alleged lover she visited on her wedding night was not identified.

Sergey Domnyshev, an investigator in the Kirov district of Volgograd, confirmed to the media Kuzmin's previous convictions and jail term.

He now faces a possible 15 year prison sentence.

Filippova was previously married and had a ten year old son by her first husband.

This is so sad, and am I the only one who thinks 15 years is too small?
