Confessing his crime in the court, the accused Oleg Belov said that he murdered his entire family as he did not like the haircut his six-year old son got what he termed a ‘parrot' haircut.
He told the court in Russia that his wife Yulia, 32, wanted to divorce him and then cut his son's hair in a way he didn't like, reported the Metro.co.uk.
‘She cut him like a parrot,' Belov said.
‘I asked her, "Are you kidding or what?"
‘I tried to grab the hair clipper and a fight broke out.'
Belov said he hit his wife twice before she ran for help. He followed her and killed her with an axe before turning on the children.
‘I killed the children so they would stay mine,' he said.
He then went to his 73-year-old mother's house and stabbed her 21 times. Belov likley to get life imprisonment.
