A Syrian refugee residing in Germany took to Facebook Live immediately after killing his wife on Friday, reported German newspapers.
The incident took place in the town of Mühlacker, Baden-Württemberg.
The man, who refers to himself as Abu Marwan, 41, killed his wife, 37, by stabbing her four to five times in the neck, then ran away with one of his children.
In an attempt to justify the crime, Abu Marwan said that his actions were a message to all women who irritate their husbands saying "this is how you'll end." The man and his son urged viewers to share the video.
