A woman in Russia stabbed her husband to death after he forgot her birthday and returned home from work empty-handed.
Lyalya Tupikova, 45, said that her husband Khalpik didn't remember her birthday.
When he returned home from office in Astrahan in southern Russia, she expected a bunch of flowers and a present. But, Khalpik had nothing for her.
She had cooked a candlelight dinner. "It was all too much for her and suddenly during the meal she seized a kitchen knife and stabbed him just above the heart," a police spokesman said.
