The wife of Turkish former football star Emre Asik has been accused of offering a hitman $ 1.3 million to kill her husband and dispose of the body during a bitter divorce case, according to reports in Turkey.
Yagmur Asik is accused of plotting to kill her husband – who played 43 times for the national team, as well as Turkish club giants Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas – as part of scheme with her lover, Erdi Sungur, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
Sungur is said to have told prosecutors that he had an affair with Yagmur, and that she was desperate to get her hands on her husband’s money.
“I had an affair with Yagmur. She was only thinking of inheriting the fortune after Emre Asik’s death. She asked me to kill him, but I refused,” Sungur reportedly said in his testimony to prosecutors in the northwestern province of Duzce. (RT)
