·2-min read

A woman and her lover have been allegedly murdered after she refused to accept an arranged marriage to her cousin.

Vildan Ince, 24, was allegedly killed while her boyfriend Osman Celik, 25, was allegedly raped and murdered after they were invited by her family to a New Year’s party to make peace.

Their deaths occurred in the central Turkish city of Kirsehir, where the young woman was due to marry her cousin in a religious ceremony after being put under immense pressure by her family.

The young woman, who did not want the marriage, had run away with her boyfriend instead almost two months ago.

Her family searched for the pair but were unable to find them until they turned up for a New Year's Eve party in the village of Kaman.

After arriving, the woman was allegedly taken to the bathroom where she was butchered and her boyfriend was allegedly stripped and raped before being stabbed to death, according to local media.

The victims were reportedly each placed in the bath in turn so that blood would not stain the floor.

After they were killed, the bodies were taken to a pit outside the village where they were covered with soil.

When Mr Celik's family could not reach their son, they reported the situation to the police.

Officers detained the Ince family for questioning and after the interrogation, the family members confessed to the murder and showed the police where they buried their bodies.

The police said that after recovering the bodies, they arrested the woman’s father, brother, the cousin she had been forced to marry, and two other relatives linked to the murders.

An investigation into the killings continues.
