Self-confessed sadomasochist Jankus faces manslaughter charges at the court in Krefeld, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, in western Germany.

He is being prosecuted for failing to call for help, allegedly leaving her injured for four days. He claims he was not aware his wife was seriously ill.

The public prosecutor believes that Jankus must have been aware of how unwell his wife was and that her life was in danger.

When questioned, he told police the sex had been consensual and that he had been taking part in sadomasochism sessions for the past thirty years.

He told police: ‘It was our honeymoon period.’

He added that he loved his wife dearly, that the sex had been consensual and that instead of going on honeymoon, they had enjoyed a steamy sex session lasting days.

Jankus has reportedly admitted that his wife had previously complained about discomfort, after the sex session, and had been to see an internal medicine specialist who had carried out a colonoscopy, but nothing had been found to be wrong with her.

Forensic medicine specialists came to the conclusion that the woman must have had some sort of barbed hook inserted into her and when it was removed this caused a perforated bowel.

The victim’s 30-year-old son, who has not been named, claimed his mother had been abused as a child and was mentally unstable.

He added that his mother was dominated by her husband and had started wearing clothes that covered her up well.

Following her death, Jankus took to Facebook to write: 'I want to say thank you for your many good wishes on the wedding. Sadly I have to inform you that my beloved wife side suddenly after only eight days of marriage. I am distraught. All the happiness I’ve ever known was the years with my wonderful wife'

She had also allegedly reported abuse at the hands of her husband before they got married, in 2017, but later withdrew these allegations and had spent some time in a psychiatric clinic.

Her son claims that she fled to a women’s shelter in 2018, before turning up happier and marrying her partner in July of the same year.

He said: ‘She had injuries over her whole body and in her genital region.

The son said: ‘I made accusations to her that she was putting up with too much and that it should never have gone this far.’

He added he had seen bruises which his mother had shown him and she allegedly told her son that she never wanted to see her partner again and never wanted to be hurt by him.

He claims that Jankus ‘abused, mistreated and humiliated’ his mother, but added: ‘I do think she loved him though.’

Her son’s partner, who is also a witness and who has not been named, said: ‘We had no idea about the violence at first. But over time it became more apparent, she was not allowed to leave the apartment. She was forced into taking drugs. She was beaten for going to the hairdressers without permission..’

Just days after proudly announcing his marriage on social media, Ralph posted: ‘I want to thank you all for the good will messages received on our wedding day. 

‘Unfortunately I have to tell you that my dear wife suddenly died just eight days after our wedding. 

All the happiness I have experienced was in the years with my wife.’

The couple had been together since 2011.

The public prosecutor have confirmed he is facing charges of manslaughter for not calling for help for his wife.

The trial is ongoing.
