A German man who was facing manslaughter charges for killing his wife in a 48-hour BDSM sex session days after their wedding has been dealt a suspended jail sentence of 18 months.

Judge Johannes Hochgürtel of Krefeld court in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia ruled the fatal internal injuries that Ralph Jankus, 52, inflicted on his wife Christel, 49, were an accident, and that he loved her.

‘We can assume it was consensual sex,’ Judge Hochgürtel said while giving the verdict, adding the accused was not likely to repeat the act.  

Jankus insisted throughout the trial that he had loved his wife.

After her death, he posted on Facebook: ‘Unfortunately I have to share with you all that my beloved wife died suddenly just eight days after our wedding, I am distraught.’

Last week, a court spokesman in the city of Krefeld confirmed that a psychiatric report shows the accused is fully accountable for his actions.

There are no indications to suggest he should be exempt from criminal responsibility, the spokesman said.

Just days after their wedding, Jankus and Christel enjoyed a mammoth 48-hour sex session when Jankus inserted an 8-inch- (20-centimeter) long spiked sex toy inside her, causing fatal internal damage to her intestines.

‘It was an object with spikes or bristles,’ the public prosecutor told the court, according to German newspaper Bild.

When emergency services were eventually called four days later, there was nothing they could do to save the victim.

Self-confessed sadomasochism fan Jankus was facing manslaughter charges for failing to call for help, although he said he was not aware his wife was seriously ill.

 When questioned, he told police the sex had been consensual and that he has been taking part in BDSM sessions for the past 30 years.

According to reports, he told police that he loved his wife dearly and instead of going on a honeymoon they opted for a steamy sex session lasting two days.

Jankus reportedly said that his wife had previously complained about discomfort and had been to see a specialist who carried out a colonoscopy, but nothing had been found wrong with her.

Forensic specialists came to the conclusion that the woman must have had some sort of barbed hook inserted into her and when it was removed it perforated her bowel.

The victim’s 30-year-old son, who has not been named, claimed his mother had been abused as a child and was mentally unstable.
