A 26-year-old teacher, Shyngys Bekenov, is a facing murder charge after he beheaded his 21-year-old girlfriend for turning down his marriage proposal.
Teacher Bekenov proposed to Nazerke Bekzhanova who had recently graduated from medical university but she reportedly refused because her parents didn’t approve of him.
Furious over her rejection, Bekenov used a knife to sever her head as they sat in his Daewoo Nexia, according to police.
According to the Sun, Teacher Bekenov then tried to end his own life by stabbing himself in the abdomen after writing a suicide note asking that they should be buried together.
Bekenov has been detained in hospital in a “grave but stable” condition with knife wounds and will be moved to detention.
He faces a charge of murder with a minimum sentence of 15 years.
His note confirmed he had beheaded the woman after she told him she would marry him, it was reported.
The woman’s beheaded body was found in the car near a dam on the edge of Tasboget village in Kazakhstan.
The junior doctor had just started her first job at a medical centre after graduating from the medical institute.
Bekenov is a high-flying young teacher who had been honoured by the authorities.
