Two suspects were later arrested.

The Russian investigative committee is conducting a murder investigation.

Marugov had been embroiled in a high-profile property dispute with his ex-wife, the poet Tatyana Marugova, last year.

There were rumors of financial difficulties and debts.

The former couple's 25-year-old son, Alexander, was killed in a motorcycle accident last year.

The committee said, "Several masked men went into a stand-alone sauna building on the household's property, tied the owner and his partner together, and asked for funds to be transferred."
