PET CARE: Flowers and candles have been laid at scene.
THE children of the vet accused of murdering his wife before dismembering her support their father’s story that their mother wanted to commit suicide.
They say she had tried to end her own life on previous occasions but swift action by their father always prevented her from succeeding.
The 45-year-old vet admitted to police he dismembered his wife’s body and called the local animal cremation services to have her remains disposed of, but he denies her murder.
He told police he found her in a semi-conscious state in the veterinary clinic in Benijofar having intravenously administered a cocktail of drugs.
He said he tried for three hours to revive her, saying he failed to alert the emergency services to save time and because he felt qualified to deal with his wife’s condition.
Unable to save her and choosing to respect the will of his wife that no one saw her dead, he explained he had her body cremated.
Defence lawyers for the vet claim shock made him react the way he did causing ‘temporary insanity’ and ask for his release from prison saying there was no murder.
