(Scroll down for video) A popular Jewish couple were found murdered in their home, police in Turkey said.

Istanbul Police said that 77-year-old Jak Karako and his wife, 69-year-old Georgia Karako, who created one of the country’s most iconic brand, have been murdered on Friday night, by their employees.

The employees of Uzbekistan, who were suspected of stabbing the couple, have been arrested after fleeing from the scene. The suspects confessed to the murder.

The suspects, a 28-year-old man and his 27-year-old wife, said that they were not paid for two months.

When they demanded their wages, the Jewish couple told them that they will not receive any payments because they caused damage to their home.

Police are looking to arrest a third suspect. Jak Karako was one of the founders of Oren Bayan, the most famous brand of yarn in the country.
