Who was Stepan Dolgikh?

Stepan Dolgikh, 35, beat his wife Oksana Poludentseva, 36, to death, then dumped her body in a ravine in Novosibirsk, Russia.

A jealous groom has been jailed for 18 years for beating his new wife to death on their wedding day in front of shocked guests.

Dolgikh had a prior murder conviction, but the wife, who met him while he was in prison as a pen pal, believed she could tame him.

Witnesses said he started kicking and hitting the mother of one of them, Poludentseva, after becoming “jealous” of her communication with another guest at her wedding party at a private home in Chik village. .

He accused his new wife of “behaving improperly”, he alleged to himself.

Investigation and Attack

Chief investigator Kirill Petrushin said: “He started hitting her and kicking her out of the house.”

He continued to attack her inside the house.

He “grabbed her by her hair, hit her, pushed her into the street, where he also continued to hit her on the body and head.” When she appeared lifeless he ‘threw her into a nearby ravine’.

The incident occurred several hours after the couple exchanged vows at their wedding.


Other guests were reportedly too scared to intervene but called the police.

The groom was detained at the scene by the Russian National Guard. Dolgikh confessed to the murder, said Petrushin, a senior regional detective with the Russian Investigative Committee.

“He beat her for a long time, in front of witnesses, and hit her vital organs, her torso and her head,” he said.He “fully admitted his guilt during the investigation” but did not regret it, he said.I was jealous of her with one of the male guests,” said Petrushin.

It seemed to her husband that he had behaved incorrectly, which caused a scandal. Everyone else was afraid of him, so they tried to intervene, but were rebuffed.

A friend said: “She really loved him and she was looking forward to releasing her.”

Murder and Criminal record

The man had prior convictions for murder and robbery, but Poludentseva believed she could help him make amends.

“The deceased woman was aware of her criminal record,” Petrushin said.

They met while she was serving time in prison for her previous crimes.

And he added: “She did not think that while she was drinking alcohol or just in a fit of rage, such a person could go over the limit and commit a serious crime.”
