A Russian husband is currently facing a 16-year prison sentence after he beat his wife into a coma.
The husband also filmed the wife covered in bruises to show that he had under control.
He showed the horrible images and videos to his friends, who did not report the abuse to the police.
Anastasia Oviannikova, the woman, died 6 days after the horrible beating at the hands of Maxim Gribanov.
The incident happened in Lebedyan, Western Russia.
Maxim reportedly beat Anastasia to prove that he had her under control when she told him that she wanted to leave him.
Pictures of the horrible attack show Anastasia sitting on a sofa covered in bruises.
When Anastasia was brought to the hospital, the doctors said she had a number of broken bones, internal bleeding, and severe bruising.
As a result of her horrific injuries, she went into a coma and never woke up.
She died 6 days later.
According to reports, Maxim, her husband, kicked and punched her repeatedly over a course of several hours.
Maxim filmed the entire incident and showed the horrible footage to his friends.
The friends of Anastasia, the victim, said that the woman met someone new and was trying to build the courage to leave her husband.
Maxim, the husband, also forced her to quit her town hall job in their city.
Due to constant abuse, intimidation, and bullying, Anastasia was too scared to leave him, fearing that he would do horrible things to her.
Maxim also threatened the brother and father of Anastasia throughout the ordeal.
