Moscow - An inebriated 22-year-old woman from the central Russian region of Udmurtiya kicked a man to death on the eve of her wedding because he owed her money, investigators said on Wednesday.

The young woman identified only as Yekaterina M and her fiancée were celebrating their upcoming marriage in a small village in Udmurtiya when a 45-year-old acquaintance called on the couple, regional investigators said.

"The man owed the girl some money but was in no hurry to pay her back," they said in a statement.

"A drunk Katya created a scene and began kicking the debtor right in front of her house," said the statement, referring to the young woman by her diminutive name.

"Her drunk fiancée calmly watched the execution."

The body of the 45-year-old was discovered the next morning. Unperturbed by the turn of events, the couple went to the registry office to marry, but the bride was arrested at her wedding banquet.

If convicted, she faces up to 15 years in prison.
