Prisoner Strangles Wife During Conjugal Visit

Prisoner Strangles Wife During Conjugal Visit

A prison inmate strangled his wife to death during a visit to a jail's sex cell after she told him she was leaving him, say officials in Nis, a city in southern Serbia.

Brutal Ivan Milovanovic, 35 - serving three years and ten months behind bars for drugs trafficking - is said to have throttled 29-year-old Bojana Bacevic when she said she was emigrating.

The jail's 'love room' is an adapted cell where couples can meet intimately once a month.

"There are no guards and no CCTV and Milovanovic and his wife had used the room several times in the past," said a prison spokesman.

"When guards returned two hours after letting them into the room they found the visitor dead on the bed.

"The prisoner says he lost his temper when his wife told him it would be the last visit," the spokesman added.

The victim's sister Bobana Radic claimed the couple had already broken up but she kept seeing him because she felt sorry for him.

"She hated to think of him being lonely and abandoned so she kept going, but she was planning a new life," she told local media.

"He was a mean, violent man and I think he would have got angry when she broke the news to him," she added.
