A "maniac" who allegedly kept a "sex slave" for 14 years forced his victim to wear a wooden “noose” covering her head and neck whenever he went out.
Russian Vladimir Cheskidov, 51, from Smolina, Chelyabinsk, was arrested earlier this week after Ekaterina Belyankina, now 33, managed to escape from his home.
Cheskidov has been remanded in custody for two months pending further investigations into kidnapping and murder, the latter charge relating to human remains found in his home.

Sinister new footage shows the damp, cockroach-infected hell where Ekaterina was held since the age of 19.
He is accused of raping her “thousands of times” and keeping her in a cramped room behind two locked doors, one of them iron.
Ekaterina finally escaped from her incarceration last week, after 14 years when the “sadist” got drunk.
When he went out, Ekaterina – known as Katya – had been forced to lie on the floor, and wear the homemade wooden head and neck noose, so she could not escape.
Her arms and legs were tethered to metal brackets fixed to chipboard in a crucifixion position.
Her mouth was taped so she could not call for help.
“It was impossible to escape from this trap as the sadist invented a special device where he placed the woman during his absence,” reported Russian state TV.
An unnamed state investigator said: “Cheskidov [the suspect] used two sheets of chipboard with metallic staples to harness Ekaterina’s limbs.
“He placed wooden noose on her head [and neck].
“Then he taped her face and mouth so that she could not call for help.”
Tacky pornographic pictures were plastered on the wall. Children’s dolls were found and earlier it was revealed investigators took away multiple sex toys used to torture her.
Beneath her room in a low-ceilinged cellar were found the remains of the other woman, who was around 30 when she was killed, it is alleged.
The bones were found in a “saucepan”.
Ekterina had witnessed the other woman being killed in a barn owned by Cheskidov and had been threatened with the same fate if she disobeyed him.
In court, Cheskidov said his relationship with Ekaterina was one of “love”.
