Egyptian have been shocked by the horrific murder of a woman and her three children by their father on New Year’s eve.
Rabat – Egyptian police found four slaughtered bodies belonging to the same family in their apartment in Kafr El Sheikh, 134 km north of Cairo.
Local police found the bodies of the wife and her daughter on the ground while the other two children’s bodies were slaughtered in their room, in the early hours of Tuesday.
An Egyptian doctor confessed he committed the murder of his wife, also a doctor, and three children aged 8, 6 and 4, respectively.
The 42-year old doctor said he had disputes with his wife, which caused him to “lose his temper and commit the murder.”
The police arrested the suspect for further investigation.
According to local media, the doctor said he strangled his wife with a “curtain rope” and stabbed her with a knife until he made sure she was dead before he stabbed his three children. He then seized his wife’s jewelry in an attempt to mislead police into believing it was a robbery crime.
