A man who killed his wife during a 48-hour extreme sex session days after they got married has been given a suspended prison sentence in Germany.
Ralph Jankus, 52, killed his wife Christel, 49, when he inserted a spiked Wartenberg wheel inside his wife, perforating her bowel during a dangerous sexual escapade.
The wheel normally used by doctors to check nerve reactions was used during the BDSM but they failed to get medical help for four days, by which time, nothing could have been done to save her.
Jankus told police in Germany that he had been involved in BDSM for 30 years and the couple had discussed whether to go on a honeymoon or engage in the marathon sex session.
Christel had previously spoken to friends about her fetish for extreme sex, but her son said that she was mentally unstable and was controlled by Jankus, Metro reports.
Judge Johannes Hochguertel hit out at Jankus for failing to take her to hospital for so long, adding that she would have survived her injuries.
However, he said that Christel’s death had had a profound effect on Jankus, she had taken part willingly, and had said she did not want to go to the hospital.
He was given an 18-month suspended prison sentence. She had previously reported her partner for abuse in 2017, but later withdrew her complaint and spent some time in a psychiatric clinic.
Her son claims that she fled to a women’s shelter in 2018, before returning happier and wanting to marry her partner in July of the same year.
He said: ‘She had injuries over her whole body and especially in her genital area.
