A wealthy businessman who gunned down his beautiful younger wife during a jealous row is on the run from police.
Suspect Rony Veras Nogueira – 15 years older than his 26-year-old wife – reportedly fled from the back of the building as police came through the front.
Victim Ianca Vale do Amaral died after being hit by six bullets to the head, chest, leg and arm as she tried to flee from the family home in Dom Pedro, north-eastern Brazil, on Saturday night (30th April).
Nogueira, 41 reportedly pulled a gun on his wife and opened fire when she tried to run away.
Police spokeswoman Renata Lins said the crime was motivated by jealousy.
After the fatal shooting, the suspect hid in a room and fled through the back of the house when the police showed up. He remains on the run.
The couple had tied the knot only last year. They have a baby daughter, whose whereabouts was not reported.
The victim’s body was taken away for a post-mortem, while police are still searching Celecoxib online for the fugitive suspect, who owns a petrol station and a barbecue restaurant in Dom Pedro.
The Civil Police (Brazil’s investigative police force) is investigating the case.
