A mother of two was shot dead by her husband in Adana on Thursday after she rejected his proposal to reconcile. Özlem Dağlıoğlu, 26, ran away from her family home to marry Burak Dağlıoğlu, 36, when she was 16. She recently filed for divorce at an Adana court on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. She also left her house and moved to her parents’ house with her two children, aged 8 and 9.
After her family insisted she hear what her husband had to say, Özlem Dağlıoğlu agreed to meet Burak Dağlıoğlu, who asked her if she wanted to reconcile. When she declined his offer, Burak Dağlıoğlu fired at her twice and ran away from the scene of the incident. Özlem Dağlıoğlu died at Kozan State Hospital. Police are continuing their efforts to find Burak Dağlıoğlu.
