A Saudi man returned home late night and rang the bell. When his wife opened the door, he aimed his gun and shot her.
The shocked wife limped away but he followed her and shot her again. The woman was still alive while her husband sat on the chair for nearly three hours watching her bleeding and writhing in pain.
