According to Russian authorities, a mother of five kept her husband's dead body in their apartment for nearly three years after he had died. Prosecutors from the central Yaroslavl region say that the woman, who has a psychiatric record, was so upset when her husband died of natural causes in 2009 that she convinced herself that he was "bound to resurrect." An investigation began after the body was found in a plastic bag inside of a dumpster in July.

The woman allegedly kept the body in a bed in the room of the apartment and forced her children to feed it. Two of the children decided to dispose of their father's corpse when they moved to another apartment.
