A MAN forced his fiancée to drink acid before making her young son watch her "squirm like a worm" as she died in agony.
Evil Alexander Larin, 33, poisoned Olga Ryadchikova in front of her distraught five year old boy who saw her writhing in excruciating pain, a Russian court was told.

East2west News4 Tragic Olga Ryadchikova died while 'squirming like a worm', her distraught son said
Larin was today jailed for 19 years.
The court heard how the acid caused "chemical burns" to Olga's mouth, pharynx, oesophagus, stomach, upper respiratory tract, and "severe toxic damage" to her internal organs.
For three days, the woman experienced torture as she burned inside.
She couldn't walk, eat or drink, and then died from acute poisoning.
Her son Nikita watched her appalling suffering and was the main witness against the man who was soon due to become his stepfather.
He remains “haunted” by the memory.
A wedding had been planned between killer Larin and the 42 year old beauty therapist.
The boy said: “He made my mummy drink white beer, and she spat it out like a fountain…
“She was lying in the corridor and squirming like a worm.”
Larin claimed the woman voluntarily drank the acid which is used in diluted quantities to pickle cucumbers.
He also cruelly prevented her getting medical treatment, the court found.
His claim of innocence was rejected by the judge in Chita.
She closed her eyes, and did not open them again
Olga's son Nikita, five
The court found that she had been forced to drink a cocktail of at least 50 millilitres of 70 per cent-strength acetic acid.
Nikita told how “mummy looked into my eyes.
“Then she closed her eyes, and did not open them again.”
Olga’s mother Galina said: “He saw his mother's body being taken away.
“He thinks these were doctors.
“He is still waiting for her to be cured and allowed home again.”
The victims’s aunt Valentina Fominykh, 66, who found her dead in the flat, hit out at the 19 year sentence.
“He should have been given life,” she said.
“Such a person must never be free….he will harm someone else.”

Lanin had called an ambulance claiming that his lover had tried to kill herself.
But post-mortem tests showed that she died of excruciating pain with her insides burned by the acid.
Olga’s child is now being raised by his maternal grandmother.
She also had an older child, now an adult.
