Young woman murders husband in family fight
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 25 - 08 - 2016

A young woman in Najran murdered her husband on Tuesday night after fight had broken out between them, police said.
The report came just 24 hours after a similar incident in Taif where a man was killed by his sister.
Najran Police spokesman Capt. Abdullah Al-Ashawi said they received reports on 1.30 a.m. Tuesday about a woman in her 20s murdering her husband after a fight had broken out between them.
"Police arrived at the house reported by the neighbor and found the body of the man. The officers identified the man as the resident of the house and concluded that his wife had murdered him. The man was stabbed on the left side of his chest with a knife," said Al-Ashawi.
Makkah Police spokesman Col. Ati Al-Qurashi said a similar incident took place on Monday in Taif.
"The police received reports of a man found dead after he was stabbed with a knife. Investigations revealed the man was stabbed multiple times in his house by his own sister. She murdered him after a fight had broken out between them," said Al-Qurashi.
He added the woman was in her 20s and was arrested on charges of murder.
Both cases were handed over to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution for further procedures.
Incidents involving family violence have been on the rise in the Kingdom.
In Jazan, a man was arrested on Sunday on charges of physically assaulting his son.
Jazan Police spokesman Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Al-Zahrani said video went viral on social media showing the father, nicknamed as Abu Faris, brutally attacking his son while verbally abusing the son's mother Umm Faris.
"The video shows the young boy being shackled in chains and beaten by his father in front of his mother," Al-Zahrani said, adding that the mother had accused the boy's father of forcing him to stay with strangers in a hotel room once.
Al-Zahrani said the father had been arrested and the son would be taken in by the Social Affairs.
The National Society for Human Rights' representative in Jazan Ahmad Al-Bahkali said the society has dealt with the father and his abuse over a year and a half ago.
"The father has mental issues which led him to take his child all the way to Makkah and to other places. The father acts irrationally and brutally abused the child. The society reconciled the case but it seems that the father went back to his abusive behavior," Al-Zahrani said.
