Woman murdered by husband in Istanbul

The 28-year-old mother of two was killed in Istanbul's Ümraniye district.

A 28-year-old woman was stabbed to death by her husband on a street on the Asian side of Istanbul on Oct. 23.

Hülya Çadırcı, a mother of two, had been living separately from her husband, Gökhan Çadırcı, while the legal process for their divorce was ongoing, the report said.

Çadırcı was walking with her child in the Ümraniye district before encountering her husband at approximately 4:30 p.m. The 40-year-old man stabbed Çadırcı five times after a fight broke out between the two, dismissing passersby who tried to prevent the attack.

Paramedics immediately arrived at the scene and took Çadırcı to the hospital, but she ultimately succumbed to her injuries.

The husband was captured by police half an hour after fleeing the scene.
