According to the legal circles on the 30th of last month, the Western District Office of the Daegu District Prosecutors’ Office arrested and indicted her husband A (60) on the same day on charges of murder and body damage.

Person A is accused of strangling and killing his wife B (51), who was not on good terms with money and sex issues, at his residence in Dalseong-eup, Daegu, on the 29th of August at around 4:50 a.m. At the time, it was investigated that he committed the crime because his wife woke her up and nagging her.

Mr. A is also accused of putting his wife’s body in a travel bag, moving it to a plastic house warehouse in Seongju, North Gyeongsang Province, spraying it with oil, and burning it for three hours.

The next day, August 30, the police received a report of Mr. B’s disappearance from an acquaintance of Mr. B. Through a CCTV near the house, Mr. A returned home at around 4:30 am on the day of the incident, and an hour later, he picked up his luggage and left. He was identified and arrested as a suspect.

According to the Gyeongcheol investigation, Mr. A and Mr. B registered their marriage on May 26, 1995 and gave birth to three children. However, on July 17 of the following year, she re-married for reasons such as marrying her children, and after that, she maintained a legal marriage.
