As Ozodoa Khakimov, originally from Uzbekistan, was being prepped for a C-Section at Coney Island Hospital on Friday, workers noticed something strange about her skin. Law officials say workers found words like "bitch" and "whore" carved in Cyrillic all over her body, and she later told the Daily News that her husband "started beating me on the day of our wedding. One time he wrote bad words on my leg, and another time with a key on my neck."

Husband Ulubek Khakimov is now under arrest for using a key to cut her skin and for threatening to kill her and her baby. However, he was not charged with writing the slurs, as those were done before the couple moved to the US. Hospital staffers called the NYPD after seeing the scars, and Ozodoa later told them how her husband beat her while she was pregnant and called her at the hospital saying he was coming to kill her and their newborn child. Police were waiting for him at the hospital.

Ulubek claimed his wife accused him of abuse because she wanted to get a divorce, but he was charged with 27 counts of assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment. Ozodoa said, "I feel safe. I have peace in my mind. Now I have a son to take care of. I have a new man in my life."
