A Turkish man who spent 14 years in prison for killing two women, his wife and later his lover, claimed that he has been rehabilitated and promised his future potential partner a safe relationship with him.

The 62-year-old Sefer Çalınak shocked viewers when he appeared on a TV program called “Ne Çıkarsa Bahtına,” or “The Luck of the Draw,” this week, saying that women should not be afraid of him because he had learned from his past mistakes and he was ready for a new beginning, Hurriyet Daily News reported Friday.


Çalınak casually admitted that he had killed his previous wife and lover, adding that he was now an “honest person looking for a new wife.”

“Women left me after I told them that I murdered my previous two wives. That’s why I openly told them. I spent 14 years in prison. I have changed my ways,” he told the local daily HaberTürk.

“The woman who will marry me should not be afraid of me killing her,” he added.

When he was 17-years-old, he married Fadime, his first wife, who was his cousin and of the same age. He said he killed her because of his jealousy.

“Her behavior changed. The nephew of a man who wanted to marry her started to come to our village. I was jealous and I killed her,” Çalınak said.

“I served my sentence. I was released after four years and six months with amnesty, despite being given a 13-year, nine-month jail term in the first place.”

He then reportedly began an affair with a married woman, who promised that she would leave her husband for him.

“I killed her after she attempted to kill me. She was accidently killed when I swung an axe,” he explained.

According to Hurriyet Daily News, he was sent to prison after the second murder but was released early.
