Hakan Aysal arrested for the murder of his wife Semra Aysal
Hakan Aysal was arrested for the murder of his wife Semra Aysal, 32, and their unborn baby while on vacation in Butterfly Valley in Mugla, Turkey in June 2018, the Sun reported.
Aysal, 40, allegedly pushed his wife, who was seven months pregnant, off the cliff after being photographed. She fell from 1,000 feet and died instantly, according to the media outlet.
After Semra’s death, the husband tried to get life insurance that he had taken out for her for 400,000 Turkish lira, or about $ 57,000. But he was refused because of a police investigation.
The prosecution accused the murder of not being an “accident” and was deliberated because she wanted her money.
A court ruled that Aysal would be held on remand for premeditated murder.
Semra’s brother Naim Yolcu said his brother-in-law showed no emotion after his sister’s death.
“When we went to the Institute of Forensic Medicine to collect the body, Hakan was in the car,” Yoluc recalls in a video interview in court.
“My family and I were destroyed, but Hakan didn’t even seem sad.”
