The husband told the police that at seven o’clock in the morning when he woke up, Tahirim also woke up, and Tahirim was the one who removed the clothes from the cupboard to go with them, and when he returned home around nine o’clock, Tahirim was sleeping. When he tried to wake her up, she couldn’t, so he took his wife to the hospital.
