Turkish woman who decapitated her rapist charged with arson
30-year-old N.Y. has been in the prison for the past two years. Her phone conversations with her husband are intercepted by prosecutorsA Turkish woman being tried for killing and decapitating her rapist has been charged for the arson of two houses, including where she reportedly committed the murder.
The suspect, identified as 30-year-old N.Y., a local of the inner Aegean province of Isparta, had made headlines in 2012 when she shot and then severed the head of a man who had raped her at gun point. The woman tossed the head into the open in the village square, yelling she had “cleared her chastity” by killing 35-year-old Nurettin Gider, who also had been blackmailing her for months. She then gave birth to the child conceived through rape in prison, after the court refused her request for an abortion.
The woman now faces a second criminal file as prosecutors sued her and her husband for arson and abetment to arson.
Unknown arsonists had burned the woman’s house two years ago, as well as another house belonging to one of the couple’s relatives.
“That house is full of very bad memories. None of them should last. Burn that house,” N.Y. told her husband over the phone from prison, according to transcripts of the wiretapped call provided by prosecutors to the court.
The couple is scheduled to testify in the Criminal Court of First Instance on Sept. 30, Doğan News Agency reported. Meanwhile, the murder case is ongoing.
