Radicalized Muslim Man Removes Wife's Right Eye, Tells Police Its 'Normal' Behaviour in Middle East
A RADICALISED Muslim who removed his wife’s right eye before slaughtering her in front of their children told police it was “normal” behaviour in the Middle East.
The brutal killer, who cannot be named to protect the identities of his three children, is facing life behind bars after he pleaded guilty to the horrific killing in June last year.
The Supreme Court heard on Friday how the Broadmeadows man had set out on a “prolonged and vicious” knife attack on his wife at their family home.
He removed her right eye in what is believed to be inspired by the Islamist one-eyed antichrist Dajjal, and cut off two of her fingers while she was still alive.
She bled to death after suffering deep lacerations across her face, neck, arms, legs, back, hips and genitalia.
Her butchered body, wrapped in a doona with cling wrap and electrical tape, was found dumped in grassland in Dallas a month later.
In his police interview, when an officer said it was one of the worst cases he had come across, the man replied: “Grow a gut for it as in the Middle East it’s normal.”
Told that his family did not condone this behaviour, he said: “F--- them, f--- everyone. I’ve done nothing wrong.”
When it was suggested he had put his children through hell, he said: “If they’ve gone through hell, they’ll grow up to be stronger.”
His children — two boys, aged 6 and 4, and a girl, 2 — described to police the bloody scenes and how they watched as their father “slaughtered” their mother with a big knife.
“All of her body was blood, nothing but blood,” one of the boys said.
They also detailed how he cut out her right eye and flushed it down the toilet.
“Mummy is like the antichrist,” one of the children remarked.
