Judge Murders Wife – Burns Her Face With Nitric Acid

Ayman Hajaj, an Egyptian Judge has allegedly murdered his 42-year-old wife and burned her face using nitric acid.

Gatekeepers News reports that earlier in June, Hajaj, who is also reportedly the Vice President of the State Council, reported that his wife, Shaymaa Jamal, a television presenter had gone missing.

According to the Judge, Jamal was last seen in front of a mall on the 6th of October City in the governorate of Giza.

According to a local news website Masrawy the circumstances surrounding her disappearance became clear after an alleged witness stepped forward and informed the authorities where Jamal’s body was.

Ibrahim Tantawi, the lawyer of the alleged witness with initials H.M., explained that his client was present when Hajaj killed his wife in the farm where her body was found.

He further alleged that Jamal was Hajaj’s second wife and that their marriage was “secret” adding that his first wife knew nothing about it.

The witness explained that after Hajaj and Jamal engaged in a heated argument, Hajaj struck her three times on the head with a gun and then strangled her with a scarf she was wearing, suffocating her to death and killing her on the spot.

He added that Hajaj while preventing him from reporting to the police, held him captive, threatening him that he will tell people he is his accomplice if he tells anyone.

H.M. managed to convince Hajaj to let him go by telling him his family will be worried about him and it was best to go see them.

After letting him go, H.M. went to Tantawi, and they immediately went to the police to report the crime.

In a statement on Tuesday, the public prosecution said a man “who confirmed his close relationship with the victim’s husband” stepped forward and said he has information that Hajaj is involved in killing Jamal.

“He confirmed he witnessed the crime and that he knows where her body is buried,” the public prosecution said, adding that the man who guided the police to Jamal’s body “confessed to participating in the crime” and has since been detained.

The public prosecution also ordered the arrest of Hajaj, Masrawy cited a well-informed source as saying.
