One mother from Dartford, Kent, was romantically involved with two men, and she thought the best way to settle who would win her hand would be by orchestrating a fatal duel.
Asta Juskauskiene, 35, may have to spend the rest of her life in prison after she organised a fight-to-the-death-medieval-style duel between her ex-husband and lover.
Asta was once married to Giedruis Juskauskas, 42, but she was also romantically linked to Mantas Kvedras, 25, a former prisoner. Apparently, Asta left her husband Giedruis when she started to see Mantas.
But the mother still had a physical connection with her ex-husband. Therefore, both men felt like Asta belonged to them. In TV dramas, men usually fistfight in a bar over their loved one, but the 35-year-old woman had a more dramatic idea.
The love triangle prompted Asta to orchestrate a deadly, medieval-style duel between the two men to see who would win her hand. (Is this a Shakespeare play?)
The deadly duel took place in a Stratford alleyway. While the men battled to the death, Asta stayed home with her youngest child, one she shares with her ex-husband. Who won the deathly battle? Well, Asta’s lover Mantas won the fatal battle, but it looks like, despite his win, they will remain separated forever, behind bars.
