A Netanya court on Tuesday extended the remand of 34-year-old Hamara Temisgin by six days. Temisgin is suspected of murdering his 35-year-old wife in their Netanya home on Monday night.
Temisgin allegedly slit the throat of his wife, Dehainesh Orly Temisgin, in their apartment on Ben-Zvi Boulevard before fleeing.
Neighbors alerted police to the scene in the city's Dora neighborhood after hearing the woman screaming, but when police broke into the apartment, they found her dead.
The husband was caught later Monday night with the help of a police helicopter.
Police believe the murder followed an argument over Dehainesh's desire to get a job.
Police also suspect Hamara was drunk.
The woman had never filed a complaint over domestic violence, police added.
