A man is accused of killing his wife in a 48-hour bondage sex session that left her with a perforated bowel, while on their honeymoon.
German national Ralph Jankus, 52, is in court facing manslaughter charges after his new wife Christel, 49, suffered severe internal injuries after a sharp object was put inside her.
Self-confessed sadomasochism lover, Jankus, told police the sex was consensual after he finally sought medical help for his wife after she allegedly suffered for four days.

She had also allegedly reported abuse at the hands of her husband before they got married, in 2017, but later withdrew these allegations and spent some time in a psychiatric clinic.
