Svetlana Kostina, a 24-year-old newlywed woman has escaped kidnapping after her jealous ex knifed her new husband to death and then drove off with her - to build a new life together.
According to The Sun UK, the young woman and her new hubby Dmitry Vladimirov, 26, were preparing to go away on honeymoon when her ex turned up at their home in Kirov, northwest Russia.
As Dmitry answered the door, the jilted attacker, who has not been named, plunged a knife into his stomach, stabbing him repeatedly until he collapsed in a pool of blood.
He then dragged the horrified blonde out of the bedroom where she had been hiding and forced her into his car, telling her he planned on building a new future with her.

The crazed wannabe kidnapper was captured shortly afterwards.
