Since she woke him up to bring him breakfast in bed as a treat, the husband was accused of throwing boiling water at his wife in frustration.
Allegedly, Ali Ay, 28, spilt boiling water over Rukiye Ay, 23, because he wanted to sleep and saw her romantic act as a disturbance.
As a result, Rukiye sustained horrific back injuries and was rushed to the Turkish hospital on 9 January.
Speaking from her hospital bed, Rukiye said it was a surprise to bring her husband’s breakfast to bed, but he was furious that she had awoken him.
Rukiya says that she then left her husband alone and went with her daughter to eat brunch, but Ali followed her and threatened to divorce her.
Then he reportedly spilt hot boiling water down the throat of Rukiya and attempted to spill it on her forehead, but she turned away.
The terrified mother said she was going to run away, but she could feel the “T-shirt sticking” sticking to her skin.
Ali is then accused of tossing at Rukiya the “rest of the boiling water” and she said some of it fell on the foot of her brother.
She said, “I prepared everything and then went to tell my husband that he was in bed for breakfast. He was angry and asked me to know why I woke him up and told me not to bother him, so I began to have breakfast with my daughter.”
“He came in still in a bad mood and told me he was going to divorce me and gain custody of our daughter no matter what I did.”
Then he poured my neck with boiling water. He was going to throw it in my face, but I turned away.
“I ran away and could my T-shirt sticking to my skin. He then threw the rest of the boiling water at me and some of it landed on my child’s feet and the rest hit me on the hip.”
Rukiye said she wanted to “escape” but in the background she passed out from the pain and could hear her daughter screaming.
Ali then allegedly grabbed the hair of his wife and dragged her to the toilet, where Rukiye found strength and took the chance to run to a neighbour who called the police.
He was arrested by police but later released on bail, sparking public fury, resulting in him being re-arrested and detained.
Rukiye said: “I couldn’t believe it, as long as he is free me and my daughter are in danger.”
