WHEATON, IL – Police have arrested a man who they say stabbed his wife to death during a domestic dispute that began when the man’s wife refused to have sex with him.
On Friday, 33-year-old Kurtis Worley asked his wife, Martha, to have sex with him one last time after she told him she wanted a divorce. When she refused, a drunken Kurtis began stabbing her in the head with a knife.
Hearing his mother’s screams, Kurtis’ 15-year-old stepson tried to get into the bedroom only to be met by a naked Kurtis “looking like … a psychopath” who stabbed the teen in the neck.
When police arrived at the home, they found the couple’s three children, ages 15, 12 and 9, outside. Inside they found Martha lying face down in a pool of blood, with “significant wounds to her head.” Kurtis was on the floor suffering from self-inflicted cuts to his throat and wrists.
His attempt to do the world a favor was obviously done with no gusto whatsoever, as he was released from the hospital on Sunday and placed in jail on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated domestic battery. He’s being held on $3 million bond.
On the other hand, his stepson is expected to survive his injuries but he will require extensive rehabilitation.Tags: Crime, Domestic Violence, Illinois, Kurtis Worley, Murder, Stabbing
