Skeptic News: Exorcism stabbing

20120630-035532.jpgA man in Russia’s St. Petersburg city has been placed in a psychiatric ward after he attempted to exorcise the devil from his wife by stabbing her with knives and a screwdriver.

The “exorcism” was preceded by a family argument though the accused had already prepared the knifes. Yury Simakov stuck three knifes into his wife’s vital organs, then removed her jewellery before he stabbed her in the head with a screwdriver.

Simakov apparently expected the wounds to heal themselves rather than kill his wife. He was apprehended by police running naked in the streets.
