Beheaded rapist's family willing to take custody of baby
DHA PhotoThe family of an alleged rapist who was murdered and decapitated by his victim has said they will take care of the baby that the victim wishes to abort at all costs, daily Habertürk has reported.
Family members of the man said they would like to take custody of the child if the state allows it.
"[The baby] is our blood. We are ready to look after it," a relative said.
Relatives, however, strongly denied the accusations of rape, claiming that there had been an ongoing "affair" between 26-year-old Nevin Y. and the 35-year-old murdered man for the past six years.
One member of the man’s family said the woman’s entire family decided on the murder after the affair became known to everyone.
"When [the affair] came out, [the woman's family] couldn't handle it," the alleged rapist's uncle said. "They turned it into an issue of honor, and brutally murdered my nephew."
The woman, a local in Isparta's Yalvaç district, severed the head of the man who she claimed had been raping her and blackmailing her for months, tossing it into the open in the village square.
Nevin Y. has repeatedly stated her to wish to abort the baby, but the court has denied her request on the grounds that that the fetus is now 29 weeks old.
