A killer OAP was known as “Granny Ripper” claimed she axed to death and dismembered a janitor in revenge after he raped her.
Sofia Zhukova, 81, from Russia was also accused of killing a schoolgirl and an elderly pal – with creeped-out neighbors alleging she cooked up her victims into meaty treats and then handed them out.

The retiree – who once worked as a pig slaughterer – has confessed in court to killing her tenant, janitor Vasily Shlyakhtich, 52.
A chilling murder reconstruction shows the killer granny acting out the ax murder. She claims he and his friend raped her in her flat.
“He and his friend raped me and (later) I chopped him with an ax,” Zhukova said. “He came to me with his friend to drink tea…“janitor lied to me, instead of tea they raped me.”
Zhukova is also accused of kidnapping and butchering schoolgirl Anastasia Alexeenko, seven, and an elderly woman – which she now denies after withdrawing her earlier confessions.
Locals say she butchered the youngster for playing “too noisily”. She insists “did not touch” the seven-year-old or the elderly woman, according to Komsomolskaya Pravda.
But her trial in Khabarovsk heard that in initial testimonies, Zhukova admitted killing them.
And tiny traces of the girl’s blood were found in her flat – even though the child vanished 14 years ago, said state investigators. The DNA matched the girl’s mother Natalia Alexeenko.
