Police officers believe a man from Melbourne, Australia killed his wife because she didn’t want him fighting for Islamic State, according to court documents.
The 35-year old man is accused of killing his wife and then mutilating her body in front of their three children in July 2016.
The prosecution says the man murdered her in their home and drove to a nearby open area with the body in the trunk of the car, while the children were in the vehicle. He then drove to a bakery to buy pastries.
“He wanted them to only speak Lebanese, and learn the Koran,” the prosecution summary stated. “He wanted to teach them about guns, swords, war and jihad.”
Along the coast in Sydney, it’s emerged that the ANZAC Day teen bomb plotter was in a deradicalization program when he planned the attack in 2016.
The boy, who was 16 at the time, attempted to obtain a gun and a bomb-making manual. He has now pleaded guilty to planning a terror attack.
ANZAC Day is the national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand for those who served and died in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
