Turkey: Man given life sentence after electrocuting wife for giving birth to girl

A man in southeastern Turkey has received an aggravated life sentence after electrocuting and killing his wife after she gave birth to a second girl, rather than a boy.

Veysi Turan, a 29-year-old waiter in Diyarbakır, killed his wife by attaching bare cable to her feet while she was asleep in January 2014, according to Anadolu Agency.

Mübarek Turan, 33, had given birth to the couple’s second daughter a day before her death, infuriating her husband who wanted a baby boy.

Turan had planned the murder beforehand, buying insulation gloves and electrical equipment for the crime, according to the indictment.

    Women have 2 X chromosomes. Men have an X and a Y. Since she didn’t have a boy, it was you’re fault, not hers, for not giving her the necessary Y chormosome without which she couldn’t make a boy.

      When has any Muzzloon ever blamed himself when he could blame a woman instead? And don’t they keep insisting that EVERYTHING is Allah’s will, inshallah? Apparently not…

    I think a fitting punishment for this piece of trash would be seeing if murderers conduct high voltage.

    480 volts would be lots of fun…

      It’s not the voltage, it’s the current. Anyway, how about something like this?

        High amperage and voltage is guaranteed to make one extra crispy in short order…

    I’m sure this had nothing to do with Islam.

    I wonder if Turkey’s life sentence is like Canada’s? If so, he is likely already out for time served and statutory release

    Soon this will happen in Britain and the Judge will let him go with the excuse that Muslims can’t be expected to know this sort of thing is illegal or even bad.
