This jealous husband has reportedly confessed to murdering his beautiful wife and his in-laws with a hammer in front of their two children.

The shocking crime took place in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad when suspect Goran Jankovic reportedly arrived at the home of his in-laws two weeks after his 32-year-old wife, identified as Mirjana Jankovic, left him.

According to local media, the victim asked for a divorce because her husband frequently attacked her in a jealous rage, always believing she had another man.

Mirjana left him a fortnight ago and successfully applied for a restraining order, according to reports.

It is believed that the suspect killed his father-in-law Branislav Pajic, 57, first by striking his head with a hammer.

According to local media, Goran Jankovic then smashed his wife’s head in before attacking his 57-year-old mother-in-law Nada Pajic with the same hammer.

The violent incident reportedly took place in front of the couple’s two sons, aged 10 and three.

During the shocking ordeal, the older brother managed to call his uncle Mladen Pajic for help and reportedly told him: “Come quick, Dad is killing Mum, Nan and Granddad. I am scared, hurry!”

When the uncle arrived at the house a few minutes later, Goran Jankovic had already fled, according to local media.

Police launched a manhunt and managed to track him down and arrest him, according to the latest reports, which also state that the suspect has confessed.
