Two bank employees were arrested on charges of murder after allegedly killing a rich man when he realized that they stole money from his account, police in Austria said.

The 2 bank employees of Graz, murdered and dismembered the 54-year-old millionaire after he discovered they swiped 80,000 euros ($89,700) from his account.

A court heard from the wife of 24-year-old Ferhat K., that her husband had communicated with 30-year-old Halil I. several times in the days before the murder.

When she asked him what was going on, he said that he was involved in a matter that he could not escape of easily, and that he and his friend had to get rid of some drugs.

Later, he confessed to the murder, just days before he was arrested. He said that his friend had strangled the man in a car, and then dismembered the body.

The man’s wife also said that Halil I. had threatened her husband and family from prison.

He sent a message to the husband that if he does not change his version of the story, he and his family should fear for their lives.

Halil I. denied the allegations. He told the court that Ferhat K. had committed the murder and he only watched.

However, a cellmate of Halil I., testified that he admitted to killing the rich man and he said that Ferhat K. was too stupid to commit such an act.

The victim died of asphyxiation due to strangulation, the medical examiner testified.
