Mother rages at ‘monster’ killer who beat her pregnant daughter and unborn baby to death because he didn’t want kids
A MUM has raged at the "monster" killer who beat her pregnant daughter and unborn baby to death because he didn't want kids.
Dmitry Vasyukovich, 36, clubbed heavily pregnant Marina Vodeyko, 33, fifteen times with a metal pipe cracking open her head in Omsk, Russia.
The man has been jailed for 18 years for killing his lover and their unborn son.
He then set her flat on fire with petrol and fled the scene.
He was trapped after her dash cam remained on in her parked car and spotted him leaving her flat following the barbaric murder.
The unborn child died 15 minutes after her mother, said reports citing law enforcement.
Vasyukovich was detained and confessed soon afterwards, taking part in a videoed police reenactment to show how he killed her.
A court heard that the pair had been in an on-off relationship for ten years and she had stopped taking the pill without telling him because she craved for a baby with blue eyes – like his.
The railway worker had not wanted a child and offered to pay for an abortion, becoming enraged when she refused.

- Always keep your phone nearby.
- Get in touch with charities for help, including the Women’s Aid live chat helpline and services such as SupportLine.
- If you are in danger, call 999.
- Familiarise yourself with the Silent Solution, reporting abuse without speaking down the phone, instead dialing “55”.
- Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
- If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
- Avoid the kitchen and garage, where there are likely to be knives or other weapons. Avoid rooms where you might become trapped, such as the bathroom, or where you might be shut into a cupboard or other small space.

He moved away to a job in Moscow, but then drove back 1,700 miles – to kill her.
The victim’s mother Alfiya dramatically confronted him in the court cage.
"Look me in the eye, monster,” she told him.
"You slept in her bed. You played God, wanted to finish her, and killed.
“You took the meaning of life from me.”
She told the judge: "Marina wanted the baby to have blue eyes.
"Blue, like Dmitry’s.”
State prosecutor Marat Abaidullin said Marina had suggested they did not live together but he paid her money to support the child.
“Vasyukovich wanted to save himself the costs of maintaining the child,” he said.
Marina’s friend Alyona Morozova said that she had “unrequited love” for him, and admitted not taking her contraceptives.
“He did not really love her, he often ignored her,” said another friend Olga Kasanich.
“In mid-January Marina texted me saying that she was pregnant, and he wanted her to have an abortion.
"She told me that she really wanted the baby.”
Vasyukovich told the trial: “I want to express my deepest regret.”
Marina and their unborn son “will always remain in my memories.
"I will remember this all my life. I am deeply sorry.
"I will try by all means to make up for the loss suffered by the family of the victims….
“At the time of the act I was under very strong emotional stress and did not understand the danger of my actions.”
He was sentenced to 18 years jail and ordered to pay £24,000 in compensation to her family.
