Husband, wife ‘stab each other to death’ in Turkey’s Balıkesir
The bodies of Muharrem Teköz and Beyhan Tökez were found dead at their home in the town of Edremit June 22 in Balıkesir province. DHA PhotoA man and his wife killed have allegedly stabbed each other to death in the western Turkish province of Balıkesir, daily Habertürk reported.
The bodies of Muharrem Teköz and Beyhan Tökez were found dead at their home in the town of Edremit late on June 22.
“We think there’s a possibility that the couple killed each other with two knives. A double murder by an outsider is a low possibility, as the door of the house was not forced open. The evidence is still being evaluated,” provincial police chief Feridun Boz said.
The couple, who have two children living outside of Edremit, reportedly started arguing with each other at 8.40 p.m. Their bodies were later discovered after neighbors knocked on their door at 9.40 p.m., before informing the police of their suspicions.
