A 46-year-old woman accused of cutting off her husband’s testicles with a chainsaw and cooking them on the oven hob has been seized by police.
Suspect Teresa Peric is believed to have drugged 42-year-old Srdjan Peric before stabbing him dead, cutting him into pieces and boiling his remains in a huge pan.
The horrific slaying reportedly took place at the family home in Zrenjanin, Serbia, at around 9pm on Tuesday, 10th May.
Teresa’s horrified teenage daughter is said to have seen the gruesome killing.
The teen – a child from Teresa’s previous marriage and identified only as D. Lj. – revealed that her drugged stepdad had woken up when he was being stabbed.
But as he crawled into the sitting room, her mother continued to hack at him with her knife.
The teen then ran to fetch her brother, but she said she then heard the noise of a chainsaw coming from inside the home.
The children were only let back in when they threatened to call the police. This is when they saw Srdjan’s mutilated corpse sprawled on the floor.
The teen said her mum had already told her that she wanted to kill her husband, with the teen pleading with her not to.
Both she and neighbours reported that the couple often fought, often due to jealousy and Srdjan’s alleged laziness.
In one recent incident, Teresa allegedly set fire to the bed where her husband was sleeping.
The couple had reportedly been together for two years, during which Srdjan spent a month in custody after Teresa reported him to the police.
Srdjan was reportedly banned from approaching his wife at the time of the incident. However, both had chosen to ignore the legal order.
Locals reported that the couple would frequently separate and then get back together.
Teresa is said to have four children from four different marriages. None of them are Srdjan’s.
Both were reportedly on medication for unspecified mental problems, with a neighbour alleging that Teresa also used drugs.
When police arrived at the house they found it covered in blood.
Teresa was arrested on suspicion of murder.
