An initial assessment of the situation found that an argument developed between the two and that after stabbing his wife to death, the man turned the knife on himself and then jumped out the window.  The police are further investigating the incident.

This latest tragedy comes after only a few weeks ago an Arad resident admitted to the allegations of shooting his wife to death.
