The dramatic incident took place outside the entrance to a block of flats in the city of Chita located in the south-eastern Russian region of Zabaykalsky Krai.
Reports said that the unnamed 46-year-old father attacked his wife in front of their two children at around 7pm.
He is accused of stabbing her several times before slitting her throat, leaving her lying in a pool of blood in the front of the building’s entrance.
