The prosecution requested twenty years in prison on Wednesday before the Verviers criminal court against a man suspected of attempting to murder his wife between April 10 and 13, 2022.
The defendant must also answer for torture, inhuman and degrading treatment, or forcing him to take cocaine. Given the seriousness and horror of the facts with which he is charged, the public prosecutor is also demanding that the court for the enforcement of sentences be made available for 10 years.
The days of the young woman were threatened after the abuse inflicted on her by her husband. She will also spend more than a month in intensive care. “For more than 36 hours, the gentleman tortured her, hit her with a bare electric cable. She has burns on her vagina, where the defendant extinguished her cigarettes. She was raped using a curtain rod and suffered the worst humiliations”detailed the prosecutor of the King.
The defendant, born in 1991 and originally from Verviers, suspected his wife of having an incestuous relationship with his brother.
The facts took place in the presence of the couple’s three children, born in 2015, 2017 and 2021.
The victim spoke at the hearing. “I am a victim of my husband, but we must not forget that he is a victim of drugs”said the young woman, still seeming to be under the influence of her husband.
The defendant, he minimizes the facts and denies certain prejudices, including the attempted murder.
Judgment will be delivered on June 23.
