He told police that his baby woke him up in the middle of the night, but his wife refused to wake up and help calm the baby. He became angered and then strangled his wife until she lost consciousness. The baby soon stopped crying after he put the baby in her arms. He told police he only realised that she was dead when he woke in the morning.

The couple had a history of arguments, mostly due to family stress and jealousy according to Sak.
