She confessed to severing his limbs and keeping some body parts in her fridge, but state investigators say they have no proof yet from initial forensic tests that she killed her husband.
Kukhal is being held “for her own protection” from his angry fans, according to one report citing Russian law enforcement.
Investigators fear Cartwright’s followers “may take revenge on her for the death of their idol”.
She has told police she found the singer dead from a drugs overdose at their elite St Petersburg apartment - and did not want his followers to know he had died such an “inglorious” death.
She aimed to dispose of the rapper’s body and then say he had gone missing.8Kukhal has claimed her husband died from a drugs overdoseCredit: RIA FAN 8Kukhal told police she had cut up Andy's body over a period of four daysCredit: Social media
There are also reports he had heart problems.
Kukhal claimed he had started taking drugs after becoming depressed during the coronavirus pandemic.
She used a knife, hammer, hacksaw, plastic bowl and chopping board in dismembering him over four days, she told police.
Investigators denied reports attributed to them that some body parts had been cleaned in the family’s washing machine.
Yet some human organs including the stomach were reported to be missing from the family flat.
The Russian Investigative Committee it had sought the widow’s formal arrest on suspicion of murder despite the lack of concrete evidence.
Kukhal’s lawyer Irina Skurtu said: "The remains were kept in Alexander's room (in black bin liners) and in a fridge.
“The smell was only in this room.
“She seemed to me absolutely sane, although very nervous, but she can be understood.
“She does not look to me like a mad drug addict.
“She explained the situation quite coherently, but kept repeating: ‘What have I done? What have I done?’”Most read in NewsTICKED OFFTikTok stars fume at Trump’s ban threat, but app says ‘we’re not going anywhere’DECKHAND DEADDeadliest Catch star dies aged 38 and will have ashes scattered in seaDUKE ALLEGATIONSPrince Andrew 'had orgy with underaged girls', claim Maxwell court docsRIP CONNIEFirst US face transplant patient who survived shotgun blast to head dies at 57BOMBSHELL DOCSEpstein 'forced underage girl to have sex with Andrew to blackmail him'HIGH SPEED SMASHTwo dead and dozens injured as high speed train derails in Portugal

Let’s Hope That Kamala Harris Is Done Pandering to White America
Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s rival-turned-running-mate, has often been referred to as the “female Obama,” a lazy, reductive moniker meant to highlight superficial similarities between ambitious biracial attorneys who are now both historic “firsts” on a presidential ticket.
But a much more consequential link between Harris and Obama is the way that both—to avoid being typecast as “too Black”—prioritized white comfort by embracing politics that often neglected, ignored, or straight-up harmed Black folks.
And those efforts to transcend race—in a country where the mere acknowledgement of racism by Black folks is treated as a militant act of rage by white Americans—is an exercise in futility and cowardice. Harris has a chance to learn from Obama’s mistakes and recognize that no amount of support for anti-Black policies will ever do enough to allay white fears of radical Blackness. That there’s no need to try and reason with white supremacy. Just speak the truth instead.
