A Syrian man living in Germany has been arrested after he broadcast himself on Facebook Live moments after allegedly murdering his wife.
The 41-year-old man—who said his name is Abu Marwan in the video—said he stabbed his 37-year-old wife three or four times in the neck because she “irritated” him. The Daily Mail reports that Marwan visited his wife, whom he has three children with, in an attempt to reconcile with her. When she was not interested, he attacked her.
In his video, Marwan said women should perceive his story as a warning of what could happen to them if they upset their husbands. He and his son urged viewers to share his video, which is no longer available.
“I went to my wife, I tried to fix things and she kicked me out, so I stabbed her,” he told viewers on Facebook. “I stabbed her with a knife three or four times. If she died or did not die, I do not know. All you women out there, that’s what you get for cheating on your husbands.”
The man was arrested shortly after he fled the scene with one of his sons, according to the Daily Mail. His children are now with youth services.
Marwan isn’t the first man to use Facebook Live to broadcast violent actions. Just last week, a man known for outing suspected drug dealers was fatally shot Monday as he recorded a Facebook Live video in Wingate, North Carolina.
