A jobless Egyptian man named Mahmoud Muhammad Suleiman, 35, killed his wife, Shadia MA, 28, by stabbing her 27 times in the chest, belly and neck with a knife in Ihnasiya city, Beni Suef Governorate, Egypt on the eve of Eid Al Adha.
The woman was drenched in her blood and succumbed to her wounds on the spot.
In a video that went viral on social media, the accused appeared while talking to his wife, before he got mad, took out a knife from his pocket and stabbed her 27 times in the neck, chest and abdomen.
He then cut the arteries of his hand.
He was taken to the hospital, where he underwent a life-saving surgery.
He reportedly killed her because of their marital disputes and her refusal to return to his home, as well as her filing of a divorce suit against him.
The accused said in his confessions, “I killed my wife, the mother of my children Tabark and Yasseen using a knife that I bought from a street vendor, by stabbing her in the neck, chest and belly.”
He said, “I hid the knife in my back pocket of my pants and went to the clothing store that my wife owns.
I entered the shop, as she was alone, to talk and resolve our differences, but she drove me mad after a verbal quarrel broke out between us.
“I took out the knife and stabbed her. She tried to stop me, but I continued stabbing her all over her body until she fell on the ground.
“Then, I continued stabbing her in the chest, until she died. After that, I sat next to her looking at her and blamed her for all that. Then I cut the arteries of my right and left hands with the same knife, and woke up in the hospital.”
He added, “I am married to Shadia since 2007, and we had two children. We had marital problems, and two months ago she left the house.”
Counselor Tariq Jalal, the attorney general for the Prosecution Office of Beni Suef, decided to imprison the accused for 4 days pending investigations.
Aziz stated that the victim had married D.G 7 years ago and they had two children. He indicated that the suspect had informed the police two days ago that her husband had been burned to death in the bathroom of the house.
His marriage proposal was rejected by the victim’s family and by her as well, due to his bad conduct and drug addiction. The rejection angered him, so he decided to kill her.
During investigations it was found that a verbal altercation broke out between the victim and her husband on the night before Eid due to a dispute over Eid expenses and clothes.
The strange incident took place in the Beheira Governorate and was the talk of social media, where pictures of burned bundles of money were widely circulated after the reason behind the fire that caught around 420,000 Egyptian pounds (Dhs83,460) was revealed.
On behalf of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khaled Bin Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, arrived on Friday in Belgrade on a working visit.
During a visit to the condolence majlis in Sharjah, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed prayed to God to grant eternal rest to the deceased and bestow strength and solace upon his family.
