An 8-year-old girl was raped and murdered after she ran away from their house following an argument with her parents.
Detectives claim that 8-year-old Vika Teplayakova was lured into a car by a married couple after she was spotted wandering alone on a road.
The husband raped her in the back seat of the vehicle before strangling her with a plastic bag.
The body of the little girl was found dumped near a lake in Sakhalin Island, Russia.
Authorities believe that the girl was trying to reach her friends in her old hometown when she was abducted.
The suspects have been identified as Igor Dvorniko and Kristina Dvorniko.
A police source said that Igor told his wife that he would attack the girl.
The wife did not do anything as she became too scared of him.
She was the one who showed the cops where the girl was buried by her husband.
Igor initially denied raping, kidnapping, and killing the girl, but he later confessed his crimes.
The girl died on Monday, which is the same day she disappeared.
Around 500 people volunteered to help find the girl.
Authorities released a CCTV footage of her walking alone down the road.
The man and the woman have been detained as detectives launch a murder probe.
The girl reportedly ran away from the house of her parents after an argument.
The body of the 8-year-old girl was found near the Pyatirechye village.
Local news agencies said that there were signs of violence on the body of the 8-year-old girl.
The island where the incident happened is located in the Pacific Ocean, just north of Japan.
