Officers found the body of an unnamed 47-year-old woman, with her head severed, in Russia's Smolensk region.
It is the second case in less than a week in Russia where complaints about cooking have allegedly resulted in murder.
'The man became angry because his wife cooked tasteless Shchi (cabbage) soup,' reported Readovka News, citing a law enforcement source.
A criminal investigation has been launched according to part 1 article 105 of the Russian criminal code – deliberate murder.
Locals said that the man had recently lost his job and had started drinking.
'Previously he never suffered from this bad habit, and nobody could recall any aggressive behaviour,' said a local report.
The man tried and failed to take his own life after murdering his partner, alleged the source.
