The man was visiting his sister at her home when he saw her 20-year-old son assaulting her, the papers said, adding that the man tried to stop his nephew.

After he refused to stop beating her, his uncle brought a kitchen knife and slit his throat in front of his mother at their home in north Jordan, the report said.
