A kebab shop owner has been arrested for strangling his wife, cutting her up and burying her body parts in the garden because she accused him of being gay.
Doner kebab shop owner Huseyin Uzunoglan was arrested and taken into custody in the district of Nizip in the Turkish province of Gaziantep on an unspecified date in late February.
He had fled to his home country after allegedly committing the shocking crime in the German municipality of Fehrbellin, near Berlin, where he lived with his family.
Huseyin claims he killed his wife, a mother of four, after she allegedly accused him of having a romantic affair with one of his male co-workers.
He is believed to have strangled her to death before cutting her body into pieces. He is then alleged to have set the body parts on fire before burying them in his garden.
The victim Elif Uzunoglan, 33, was last heard from by her relatives on 19th February.
Her husband’s arrest came after his in-laws reportedly found incriminating evidence on his phone following her disappearance and called the cops.
The incriminating evidence allegedly included searches about unsolved murders and countries without extradition.
Following the suspect’s arrest, he confessed to the crime during questioning.
Turkish police then got in touch with their German counterparts, who went to the family residence, where they found evidence of the murder, including the victim’s head and torso.
The victim leaves behind four children, of whom two are the suspect’s and two are twins from a previous marriage. It is not clear with whom they are now living.
It emerged that before Elif’s death, she had left her husband on two separate occasions and gone to a shelter. However, she later returned home both times.
Elif’s recovered remains were sent to Istanbul, where her relatives live, where they were buried on Thursday morning, 10th March.
