Man who killed wife with spiked sex toy is spared jail

A man whose wife died during a 48-hour extreme sex session days after they got married has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Ralph Jankus, 52, killed his wife Christel, 49, when he inserted a sharp sex toy inside her.

Over the course of two days they used what is known as a Nervenrad, or Wartenberg wheel, which is used by doctors to check nerve reaction and has spikes on the end.

She suffered from a perforated bowel and they did not seek medical help for four days, by which time nothing could be done to save her.

Jankus was blasted by a judge for being grossly negligent when he failed to take her to hospital. Judge Johannes Hochguertel said she could have been saved if he had sought help.

However, he accepted that there was no reason to file a murder charge and he was handed an 18-month suspended jail term.


The court took into account the effect Christel’s death had on Jankus and that she had willingly taken part in the BDSM sex session.

She had previously spoken to friends about her fetish for extreme sex.

Jankus had told police that he had been involved in BDSM for the last 30 years and that he loved his wife.

They had discussed whether or not they should go on a honeymoon but instead opted to take part in the lengthy sex session.

When she was injured she told Janus that she did not want to go to hospital and Jankus said he did not know how serious her injuries were.

The victim’s son, 30, said that his mother was mentally unstable and had been dominated by Jankus, covering her injuries with clothing.

According to local media, she had previously reported her partner for abuse in 2017, but later withdrew her complaint and spent some time in a psychiatric clinic.

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

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

‘I warned her that she was putting up with too much and that it should never have gone this far.’

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

The son’s unnamed partner, who was also a court witness, 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 and was forced to take drugs. She was beaten for going to the hairdressers without permission.’

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

‘Unfortunately, I have to tell you that my dear wife died suddenly just eight days after our wedding. All the happiness I have experienced was during the years with my wife.’

The couple had been together since 2011.
