Syrian man in Germany appears on air with blood on his face after killing wife
A Syrian refugee residing in Germany took to Facebook Live immediately after killing his wife on Friday, reported German newspapers.
The incident took place in the town of Mühlacker, Baden-Württemberg.
The man, who refers to himself as Abu Marwan, 41, killed his wife, 37, by stabbing her four to five times in the neck, then ran away with one of his children.
Murder is a message to all women
Abu Marwan appeared on his Facebook stream panting and bleeding due to a cut sustained in his hand. Next to him, appeared his son.
Police and public prosecutors in Karlsruhe arrested the killer shortly after he escaped the crime scene.
In a joint statement, the concerned officials said that the couple’s underage daughter was still in the apartment when she informed police about a crime that took place around 4:30 in the afternoon.
German newspapers reported that Abu Marwan has been separated from his wife, who earned custody of their three children.
The man alleged that the victim kicked him out when he attempted to visit her to resolve matters between them and unite the family.
In an attempt to justify the crime, Abu Marwan said that his actions were a message to all women who irritate their husbands saying “this is how you’ll end.” The man and his son urged viewers to share the video.
A local newspaper concerned with Syrian refugees reported that Abu Marwan used to frequently call his ex-wife asking for money.
