A nanny from hell was so jealous of her employer’s happy family life that she stabbed a mother 15 times in a frenzied attack with a kitchen knife.
Ekaterina Krysova has now been jailed for 11 years in Russia for murder.
The 29-year-old was seen as a caring and loving nanny to Pavel, the three year old son of Anna Belova and her husband Alexey Belov in Yekaterinburg.
But a court heard that Krysova was secretly jealous of Anna’s family life.
She “lost her mind with jealousy” and “convinced herself that she could have become a better mother for little Pavel”, according to one report.
She then stabbed Anna in front of the boy.
When security guard Alexey could not reach his wife, he rushed home from work and found the child sobbing over the bloody corpse of his wife – and the nanny sitting close by.
He said: “I was at work when it happened.
“My wife had called me – the line was bad, and I said I would call her later. But when I called again, her phone was switched off.
“This was unusual, her mobile was always on.
“I got worried and rushed back home.
“What I had seen there… It was horrific. A true bloody horror.
“When I came in, my wife was lying here, in a puddle of blood.
“The knife was next to her.
“Our nanny was there too, hugging the boy”.
She told him she killed Anna.
Later in court she said: “I dreamed of getting married and having children.
“It was like fog in my mind.
“I plead guilty.”
She confessed that she felt like a mother to the boy because Anna was out to work as the family’s main breadwinner.
“I was with Pavel from 8am to 11pm,” she said.
“I fed him, played with him, I was like a mother for him. And he loved me too.”
Alexey said: “She lived with us for about a year.
“We were joking that she was like Anna’s sister.
“We felt very safe to leave the child with her while we were at work.
“She lived with us even at weekends.”
Investigators checked other versions – including that Alexey had murdered his wife, but ruled this out.
Investigator Alexander Gartsev said: “The murder was solved quickly.
“Evidence was gathered at the scene.
“The accused woman confessed.”
His boss Igor Yudin, the head of investigative department in the Ordzhonikidze district of Ekaterinburg, said the nanny “passed mental health checks and was pronounced sane.”
Prosecutors had demanded 15 years in jail but the judge said she had confessed her guilt and “repented” .
He ordered her to serve 11 years in prison.
Anna had two children from a previous marriage who were unharmed.
