A woman in Russia is accused of keeping her dead husband's body in the family apartment for nearly three years after he died.

A devout Pentecostal Christian with a psychiatric record, the unidentified woman was so distraught after her husband's death in 2009 that she believed he was "bound to resurrect," prosecutors in the central Yaroslavl region told The Associated Press.

She even asked her children to talk to and feed the cadaver, according to the local prosecutor's office.

An investigation was launched after the man's body was found in the trash in July.

Officials told the AP the woman's five children decided to dispose of the body during a move to another apartment.
