And a judge tells him to “keep his distance.” WTF? Islamic honor violence straight out of Pakistan, but a judge too? via PD: Man pours hot oil on wife – WFSB 3 Connecticut. h/t (the new) Atlas Shrugs
WEST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) – A 41-year-old woman suffered “severe burns to her upper torso” after police said her estranged husband poured hot cooking oil onto her while she was sleeping.
According to police, the woman and her husband, 51-year-old Mohammad Chaudhry, had been separated for the past year.
However, she decided to sleep over at his apartment on Canton Street in West Haven Tuesday night to visit with her children.
She was sleeping in bed with one of her children when, around 4:30 a.m., Chaudhry, who is from Pakistan, entered the woman’s room.
Police said Chaudhry removed the child from the bed after putting the oil on the stove to boil. He then poured three to four cups of hot oil on the mother.
Her children told police they heard her “screaming in pain and rushed to her aid.”
The woman was taken to the Bridgeport Hospital burn unit where she is believed to be in good condition.
Chaudhry fled the apartment after the incident, but was detained by police a short time later. Police said charges are pending against Chaudhry, who is currently unemployed.
Eyewitness News did see a request for divorce from Chaudhry that was filed back in 2006. He told police that he poured the oil on his wife because of the divorce. Chaudhry said he believes she was cheating on him with another man.
Sources told Eyewitness News that the oil burned through the comforter.
Chaudhry appeared in Milford Superior Court on Wednesday afternoon and will continue his arraignment on Thursday.
Chaudhry is being held on a $750,000 bond.
Neighbors can’t believe someone would do something like this.
“It’s pretty quiet around here,” said one neighbor. “Every once in a while someone steals a car.”
The defendant, a native of Pakistan, stood 10 minutes in manacles before Markle with an interpreter of Urdu at his side.
[Judge] Markle issued several orders to defendant Mohammad A. Chaudhry, which include:
• He must not possess firearms.
• He must stay away from her home and must keep 100 feet from her. He can have no written or oral contact with her.
• He may not annoy or alarm her.
• He may return to the apartment once, accompanied by a West Haven police officer, to retrieve his personal belongings.
Violations of Markle’s orders could bring him additional felony charges and five years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine, she told Chaudhry.
Markle’s order extends to the woman’s minor children.
In addition, Markle said the court is considering telling Chaudhry to relinquish his passport.
Why isn’t this an attempted murder charge? The son reported to police he thought his mother had been killed. And why is he being set free?
