Jealous husband gouges out wife's eye after she asks for divorce
Want China Times
CHINA — A woman from southern China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region has had an eye gouged out by her husband after he discovered that she had begun a new relationship and wanted a divorce, reports the local Nanguo Morning News.
The 39-year-old woman from Yulin city in Guangxi, surnamed Li, met her second husband, surnamed Long, over the internet in November last year after the end of her first marriage. She at first thought he was her true love as they had much in common and the man, from south-central China's Hunan province, did whatever she asked.
However, after dating for three months the man changed and asked Li to help pay half of the 150,000-yuan (US$24,700) debt that his family owed for their pig business. Li refused and Long stripped her naked and beat her. She tried to leave him but Long hid her ID card and threatened to harm her family if she did so.
