The Public Prosecutor of Major Crimes has charged the murderer with premeditated murder.
A source close to the investigation told Roya that marital disputes were a motive for the perpetrator to hide a sharp object and attack his wife, who was supposed to undergo surgery in the orthopedic department in the hospital on the same day.
The source indicated that the wife had to undergo the surgery as she was severely beaten by her husband 10 days ago, which led to him breaking her jaw.
