Her husband, Billy Kruger, was arrested several hours later, just before he boarded an Indonesia-bound flight out of France, according to the outlet. 

The couple had a home in the south of France, not far from where police found Bardina-Kruger’s remains, the outlet reported. Bardina-Kruger worked as a teacher in Jakarta, Indonesia, the outlet reported. 

Kruger reportedly admitted to stabbing Bardina-Kruger twice, but claimed it was in self-defense.
