A woman in west Siberia has been charged with attempting to murder her son-in-law with an axe.

"Despite having a broken leg and being on crutches, the woman waited until her son-in-law had fallen asleep and hit him several times around the head with the blunt side of an axe," regional investigators said in a statement.

The man was able to put a stop the attack, investigators said.
