After a quarrel, the British visitor to Turkey is said to have stabbed his wife to death in their hotel room with a screwdriver, leading to her arrest.

Tuesday, November 14, at approximately 12:30 pm local time, the body of the 26-year-old woman was discovered in a hotel located in Istanbul’s Fatih Mevlanakapı District.

The deceased was discovered “lying in a pool of blood” by hotel staff after they reported hearing “sounds” emanating from a room. When medical personnel finally came, they declared her dead.

Examiners concluded that the woman had been slain with a screwdriver after finding cuts all over her body, including her throat.

After attempting to hail a taxi away from the site, Turkish police conducted an investigation and discovered her spouse, 28, wearing a bloodied white T-shirt.

The murder suspect admitted to the crime and claimed to have thrown the screwdriver into the hotel room’s toilet.

The suspect was questioned at the Homicide Bureau following his apprehension.

According to Turkish media, he said that the victim offered him narcotics the day of the attack, which started a fight.

He claimed that after their argument, he killed his partner by stabbing her multiple times with the screwdriver.

In a statement to the police, he said he was using medication due to ‘psychological disorders’.

He admitted to fleeing the scene after hiding the evidence.

Police managed to catch the suspect by contacting the taxi driver and asking them to go to the nearest police station or police enforcement point

The suspect was seen being led away from the Istanbul Police Department after his arrest, pictured in Turkish media in handcuffs and with his head held down.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

The couple was reported to have arrived in Turkey on November 11, having flown to Sabiha Gökçen Airport. They settled into their hotel on November 14, where the victim was later found dead.
