A bride in Russia was reportedly arrested on her wedding day for allegedly beating a man to death the night before.

The bride, 22, is accused of beating a local man, 45, to death because he owed her money, an investigative committee said on Wednesday.

When the man came to the bride's home on the eve of her wedding and failed to pay back the unspecified amount, the woman allegedly beat him as her fiance watched, according to the committee. The couple had reportedly been drinking.

Police in the region of Udmurtia detained the bride just after her wedding, RIA Novosti reports. She faces up to 15 years in prison.
