A man has been jailed for life after he strangled his wife to death as he plans to start a new life with his gay partner in Australia.
It was revealed that the said man identified as Mitesh, Patel, a pharmacist, spent five years planning to kill his wife so he could use her frozen embryos to have a family with his lover he met on a gay dating app, Grindr.
Investigators also disclosed the suspect planned to claim a £2million life insurance payout and tried to cover his tracks by staging a break-in and claiming an intruder murdered his wife.
His evil plans were exposed by a health app on his iPhone that recorded his frantic act as he raced around the house after her death.
The deceased prior to her death was subjected to domestic abuse.
Her family sited examples of domestic abuse and “controlling and coercive behavior” which were highlighted in the probe.
The report said the deceased identified as Jessica told her younger sister her husband “hit her in the car” in arguments about him stopping her from seeing more of her dying grandfather.
Jessica “stopped speaking up about things” and “appeared scared” when it came to committing to attending family events.
The suspect is said to have shouted at his wife in front of customers at the pharmacy they ran together and threw a phone at her, injuring her leg.
Although Jessica died childlessly, Reports say she underwent fertility treatment as she desperately wanted to be a mother, but she did now know that her husband was taking drugs to stifle his sperm count.
Jessica’s heartbroken family paid tribute to her in the report, stating:
“Heaven has gained an angel but the world is at a loss for it.
“Jessica was a rarity: she was beautiful on the outside, and even more so on the inside.
“She had a truly selfless soul and afforded everyone she met with a kindness and generosity that was second to none.
“As the firstborn in our family, she brought an immense amount of joy.
“She had this lovable smile which encapsulated her gentle nature and innocence and would make our house feel like a home.
She had her whole life ahead of her, a life in which she simply wished for true love, a family of her own, and to live happily ever after.
“Above all, her greatest wish was to be a mother, to share the love she had in her heart, and feel the same happiness she afforded to our family as a child.
“She deserved to have a wonderful life, but these wishes will now remain unfulfilled.
“We are extremely blessed to have had Jessica in our lives.”
In as much as marriage is important let’s be careful the people we agree to go on that journey with as some just come to destroy us.
