Harun Fener confessed today that he was the one who yesterday shot his wife, Sinem Fener, 28, six times at point-blank range and left her dead in a town square in the suburb of Hvidovre, Ekstra Bladet reports.
Escorted under heavy protection
The 33-year-old husband was arrested last night and brought to trial at Glostrup City Court this morning. He will remain in custody until he is sentenced.
He was escorted by four cops wearing bulletproof vests and machine guns. Harun is also charged with systematically threatening his wife before killing her. Two incidents took place on Sunday, when he threatened Sinem with a gun in a parking lot and later came to her house and allegedly told her: "I'm not afraid of doing 16 years."
Harun denies these allegations, and the motive for the killing remains unknown.
Sinem Fener was murdered in the middle of the street in front of several eyewitnesses. She was walking with someone else, when Harun suddenly pulled up his car and started shooting. When she tried to escape into her car, he shot her again several times and drove away from the scene.
Harun and Sinem Fener had a three-year-old child together, and relatives on both sides said they had a happy marriage. However, it was revealed today that the Danish couple, who are believed to be of Turkish heritage, were divorced twice between 2006 and 2011.
