A Russian man has been accused of stabbing his wife to death, justifying the act by claiming she had gone to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
37-year-old Shapi Shakhshaev allegedly stabbed his wife, Fatima, to death at their home in Moscow and dismembered her body while their three children were sleeping, The Daily Mirror reported.

[Shakhshaev] then told the cops in June that she had left Moscow with a female friend to go to Chechnya, which has a mainly Muslim population, and from there had travelled to Syria.
But after finding out from her worried family the couple were in the process of getting divorced and she was going to take the children, police searched the flat.
They uncovered the murder weapon and also traces of blood.
“We were suspicious because by all accounts she was devoted to her children and it’s unlikely she would have left them with her husband even if she was leaving,” a police spokesman said.
Fatima’s family said she was unhappy her husband was constantly playing computer games and was convinced he was cheating on her. “He kept saying she was a drug addict, but it just wasn’t true,” Fatima’s mother told The Mirror.
Like his claim about ISIS, he was always talking rubbish. She wanted to get back to our family in Mahachkala in southern Russia, but she did not make it.
He did not allow her to go. Poor kids. She left three kids. Two girls and a boy.
As for Shakhshaev, he is currently in prison awaiting trial.
