A Russian man killed his estranged wife by throwing petrol over her and setting her alight while she was at work in a supermarket. He was sent to jail. The shocking CCTV images of the attack, showing the 25-year-old victim going up in flames and running through the store, caused outrage across Russia, and led to widespread calls for a crackdown on violence against women. Murderer Alexander Efimov (33) drank a bottle of vodka and was three times over the legal alcohol limit for motorists when he was arrested. He said the attack was his wife’s fault.
