Tuesday evening in Boulazac, a 52-year-old woman was found dead at her home. It was her 53-year-old husband who called the emergency services saying he had stabbed him to death.
On Wednesday, the Périgueux prosecutor’s office confirmed that the evening before, a 52-year-old woman was found dead at the marital home she occupied in Boulazac (Dordogne). The victim, reports France Bleu Périgord, succumbed to twenty stab wounds. It was the 53-year-old spouse who alerted the emergency services, declaring that he had killed his wife.
Dead woman stabbed in Boulazac: her spouse was drunk
If the 50-year-old was still alive when help arrived, she died shortly after. Also at the scene was the victim’s husband. It was around 8:00 p.m. when he was arrested and placed in police custody at the Périgueux police station. A Source close to the case says the man was drunk when he was apprehended.
A former gendarme already unfavorably known to the authorities
If the respondent is already known to the authorities, it is not only because he was a policeman, ending his career as a non-commissioned officer outside the department. This 50-year-old had thus received a judicial conviction in 2016 for “theft”. Two years earlier, he had been removed from the gendarmerie in Ouzouer-le-Marché (Loir-et-Cher) for an unknown reason. However, this man had never been convicted of domestic violence.
An investigation opened for aggravated homicide
An investigation was opened by the prosecution for “aggravated homicide by spouse and with weapon”, investigations entrusted to the Urban Security of Périgueux. The couple had been married for several years and, at the time of the events, no children were at home.
