Roysce "Yusef" Haynes, a Muslim man in Pennsylvania who admitted to killing his pregnant wife, was recently found guilty of two counts of third-degree murder. Haynes says he did not mean to kill her and it happened due to tension over her not wearing proper Islamic dress.
The couple's relationship issues started when Haynes' wife, Atiya Majah Perry, rebuffed his requests to wear religious attire. He blamed her family for influencing her. He eventually kicked her out of the home, admonishing her as "disobedient." A few days later, she came to the house and he killed her in a fight that ensued.
Haynes said that the death was accidental and that she first began punching him in the head.
