Authorities arrested Tatiana Kudinova, a Russian businessperson, for arranging a hit on her daughter-in-law who had irritated her by making nonstop mother-in-law jokes. The feud began over who should pick up the tab for a family party. But Roxanne, the daughter-in-law, didn’t let it rest and continued making jokes about her “skinflint mother-in-law.”
Tatiana hired a hit man to kill Roxanne. The hit man turned out to be an undercover policeman. Mom was sentenced to nine years in prison.
