Lecce, July 29 - A man who could not accept his
wife's wish to end their marriage shot and killed her in the
home she shared with her three children, police said Monday.
The man then shot himself in a murder-suicide in Taurisano
in southeast Italy that came the day after police reported a
similar case in the northern port city of Marina di Massa.
There, a man who killed his wife before taking his own life
was in the grips after jealousy, police said.
Marco Loiola, 40, first shot and injured a friend of his
wife, then went into the restaurant where 38-year-old Cristina
Biagi worked and shot her in the chest.
These murders are the latest in the wave of so-called
'femicides' across Italy.
Eighty-one women were killed in Italy in the first six
months of this year - 75% of whom were slain by family members
or intimates, a joint report by the Italian social economic
research group EURES and ANSA reported in June.
Between 2000 and 2012, there were 2,200 women who were
murder victims in Italy, or an average of 171 per year - about
one murder every other day.
