The number of women killed in incidents of domestic violence in the last 9 months across Turkey has risen to 166 with the murder of Hasret Akdoğan by her former husband, Tuncay Göçer.

 

The Habertürk daily reported on Saturday that after killing his ex-wife and wounding her mother in the Ortaca district of Muğla province, Göçer committed suicide with the same rifle used to shoot the two women.

 

According to statistics, one woman was murdered every 40 hours in Turkey in 2016.
