MALAYSIA - An outraged soldier left his estranged wife black and blue for having the audacity to ask him to undergo a fertility test, Harian Metro reported.
The 35-year-old woman suffered injuries on the nose, left eye and body as a result of the attack at the parking lot of the Seberang Jaya Hospital in Butterworth on Tuesday morning.
The couple was in the process of getting a divorce and the wife reportedly wanted proof that her husband, 42, was infertile.
The couple, who had been living apart for several months, came in separate cars and met at the car park where an argument started.
The man battered the wife and allegedly threatened to kill her, a source told the paper.
Penang deputy CID chief Asst Comm Nasir Salleh confirmed the woman had lodged a police report.
