MARMARİSA 17-year-old waiter working at a hotel stabbed a Belarussian tourist to death in the touristic Marmaris district of the Aegean province of Muğla late on Sept. 23, Doğan News Agency has reported.
The incident occurred after the 28-year-old Vidkar Haladko reportedly arrived with his wife back at his hotel in the Turunç neighborhood of Marmaris after a night out. Haladko reportedly went to the pool bar for a drink while his wife went back to their room.
