London, Aug 17 (IANS) A woman in Russia stabbed her husband to death as he forgot her birthday and returned home from work empty-handed, it was reported here.

Lyalya Tupikova, 45, said that her husband Khalpik didn’t remember her birthday.

When he returned home from office in Astrahan in southern Russia, she expected a bunch of flowers and a present. But, Khalpik got nothing for her.

She had cooked a candlelight dinner for two, said the Daily Mail.

“It was all too much for her and suddenly during the meal she seized a kitchen knife and stabbed him just above the heart,” a police spokesman was quoted as saying.

Khalpik, 50, collapsed and died soon afterwards.
