“I returned home in the morning of March 2, 2025, and was knocking at the gate, but my wife did not open it immediately.”

“In that anger, I started shouting at her. I first slapped and hit her from the gate to the house before angrily grabbing her on the neck and strangling her to death.”

“I couldn’t believe what happened because i never expected that such actions would lead to her death.”
