She told him to go alone and he started hitting on her.

He made a maneuver and got in front of them and the 32-year-old out of fear turned the car and tried to leave.

He followed her and was hitting her with his car in the back of her car trying to ram her.

Out of fear, she stopped at a grocery store in Afandou and asked for help. She called the police and was locked in the car with the children.

Due to the intense commotion that was caused, a neighbor of the couple, other details unspecified, started shouting that the police would be called. The accused then left the bedroom and went to the toilet of the house. There, after first abusing the neighbor, he broke the mirror and returned again in a rage to the bedroom, where he immediately took off his belt and began to hit the patient with it in the area of ​​the left shoulder blade.

The patient then began to beg the accused to stop, invoking the youngest of their three children and climbed onto the bed in the bedroom, resting her back against the wall.

After the defendant managed to remove the pillow from his hands, she leaned her body against the wall, resting the pillow in the area of ​​her face, and the defendant again came upon her and began to hit her, both with his hands and and with kicks in the neck area but also pressing her face on the pillow, as a result of which the woman has difficulty breathing.
