CAIRO (Web Desk) – An Egyptian man killed his wife by stabbing her 17 times on the grounds.

According to reports she preferred Facebook to him, Emirates 24/7 reported on Wednesday.

Police arrested the husband after her brother reported that she was stabbed many times at their home.

According to her husband he decided to kill her because she preferred Facebook over him and was always busy with the social media without giving him any attention.

Her mother, speaking on a local TV channel, said she had rejected that man as a husband for her daughter but that the girl insisted on marrying him.

“I did not see my daughter as a bride at her wedding. I saw her dead at her funeral,” the mother added.
