A man was arrested after he stabbed his wife, who refused to have sex with him.
Kurtis Worley, 33, of Addison, Illinois was jailed after he stabbed his wife to death because she refused to have sex with him “one last time before their divorce.”
Police said that Worley was distraught when his wife told him that she wanted to divorce him. Worley asked his wife to have sex with him one last time, but she refused his request, which made him very angry.
Police said Worley then stabbed his wife, 39-year-old Martha Worley, to death and stabbed her 15-year-old son when he tried to intervene. Worley allegedly jumped on top of his wife, and hit her. Then, he took a knife and began stabbing her in the head.
Mrs. Worley’s two children, ages 12 and 15-years-old, heard their mother screaming so they ran to the master bedroom where the stabbing was taking place. When the door opened, Worley “was naked and looking like a psychopath,” according to the arrest report.
When the eldest son tried to push past his stepfather to save his mother, Worley used the knife to cut the boy’s throat. That’s when the boy called police.
Officers arrived at the scene at 3:00 am to find the wife lying face down on the bed. while the husband was found lying on the floor after he cut both of his wrists in a failed suicide attempt. Two bloody knives were recovered from the scene.
Martha Worley was rushed to a local hospital where he succumbed to her injuries. Her son was also taken to a local hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for his injuries. Prosecutors said that the child will need physical therapy to regain his ability to speak.
The couple had reportedly been married for ten years and have a 9-year-old daughter together.
Kurtis Worley was booked into jail on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated domestic battery. He remains in jail on $3 million bond.
