A man has been charged with murder after shooting dead his naked wife and her lover when he caught the pair having sex.
Forty-two-year-old Juan Carlos Garcia is believed to have admitted to killing his 39-year-old wife, Sandra Castellanos, and her 35-year-old boyfriend Noe Gomez, at their family home in Atlantico, Colombia.
The security guard suspected his wife was having an affair while he was working night shifts and planned a trap to “catch her with her hands in the dough,” according to police.
The couple’s three children were sleeping in the house when Garcia allegedly pulled a handgun on the couple, shooting them at around 9pm on August 4.
Garcia was tipped off about the couple’s secret tryst by neighbours and pretended to go to work so he could catch Castellanos and Gomez in the act.
Garcia reportedly stayed at a friends house and called his wife at around 9pm to check on the children. He burst into the family home moments later, catching the lovers in the act.
He was later arrested in what police called a “horrific crime of passion” in the Villa Maria area of Soledad, Colombia.
But even though police say the man handed himself in and confessed to his crimes, he did not show remorse.
He is believed to have told officers: “She was unfaithful and sullied my honour as a man. All I did was remove the woman who destroyed my life in this world.”
A police report said: “At 9.05pm Juan Carlos Garcia called his wife to ask about his three children, she answered the call and told him that they had gone to bed early because they had to leave for school.
“The suspect Juan Carlos Garcia found his wife making love with her lover. The husband was filled with anger and killed them both.
“He handed himself in to police and said that he did not feel sorry for what he had done.”
Police said Garcia had been remanded in custody and would face court hearings at a later date.
They said the three children would attend their mother’s funeral and be cared for by relatives, according to SUN.
