A murder suspect accused of killing her rapper husband worked with her mother to dismember his body, Russian investigators have claimed.

Marina Kokhal, 36, allegedly confessed to cutting up the corpse of her husband, Andy Cartwright, but claims he died of natural causes.

Police have now arrested her mother, Elena Kokhal, 67, and allege she colluded with her daughter to kill him after rumours of an affair surfaced.

Detectives claim wife Marina bought an insulin drug and administered an overdose to the rapper.

Andy’s body parts were then discovered in Marina’s fridge, with others in bin liners waiting to be disposed of.

Investigators also allege Marina and her mother, Elena, fed Andy’s fingers to rats in the garden.

In a statement, Russian police said: “The investigation collected a sufficient evidence base indicating that the murder was planned by the accused [Marina Kokhal] in advance.

“Shortly before it was committed she purchased a medicine from a city pharmacy which she later used to commit the crime.”

Important information to the investigation was also seized from mum Elena, who was arrested as she lives in the same apartment as her daughter.

Elena’s lawyer, Irina Skurtu, called the mother’s detention “the last throw of the dice” by detectives who had no proof against her client.

Skurtu also claims Marina was quizzed on “disgusting” and “sick” claims, including asking whether or not she tasted her husband’s blood.

It was also claimed she "had sex with the corpse" of her husband, despite Marina "categorically" denying she did not murder Andy.

Andy’s alleged lover, Nadia Romanenko, told cops she had threatened him by claiming her husband had AIDS.

She said the pair met "every day" and said Marina didn’t know about the affair.

Nadia said: "Our sexual relations took place at my apartment.

"I specially rented a flat near his house.

"We met every day, and Kokhal did not know about it."
