A heartless man has brutally murdered his wife by using three different knives to cut her neck after she asked for divorce. It was gathered that the man had sent the estranged wife a text message asking her to come over so they could talk over the matter. The man, identified as Abdirashid Khadar, 22, sent mother-of-one, Amal Abdi, 21, a text message saying: 'Honey come and see me at home' to persuade her to visit after she demanded for a divorce.
When she refused, he persisted and told her that some of his family members were visiting and he wanted her to tidy their flat in the Barton Hill area of Bristol. Dailymail reports that shortly after Abdi arrived at the property, Khadar attacked her using three knives before dialling 999 and confessing to killing her.
When police arrived, they found Khadar in the local area, where he told them: 'I've got something to show you at the flat.' Kate Brunner QC, prosecuting, told the jury: 'Police went into the flat. They were greeted by a horrifying scene. 'Blood was smeared on the walls and floor. They discovered the body of Amal Abdi in the living room, lying curled up in a pool of blood with large wounds on her neck.
'She had been repeatedly stabbed with a number of different knives. 'The prosecution's case is that it was a set-up, that the defendant lured her to the flat with a false story about his relatives visiting.'
At a police station after his arrest, Khadar asked officers: 'My wife, she OK?' When told she had died, he replied: 'Can you kill me?'
The court heard that hours before she died on the evening of July 26 last year, Abdi had demanded a divorce and was going to tell her family, saying: 'I don't want you any more.' However, Khadar had claimed during police interview that his wife would shout and slap him and he would try to be tolerant but 'his patience had worn out' which led him to commit the horrible act.
The couple were both from Somalia and married in 2010, with Abdi moving to the UK and settling in Bristol, but Khadar did not join her.
Trial on the case continues.
