Bail denied for man accused of threatening to burn wife's genitals, rape
by Kathleen Frenette
There will be no bail for a Quebec City man who is accused of threatening to burn his wife's face and genitals with acid, forcing her to have sex and citing the Koran to justify beating their children.
The 40-year-old man was arrested on Jan. 26 after his wife filed a complaint with police, alleging that he had threatened her in a Walmart.
"The accused is possessive, he feels his wife belongs to him. He invokes the Koran when he hits his children. He tells his wife that if she leaves him, he will burn her face and genitals with acid. Today, his wife has left him, and she in danger because of it," Judge Bernard Lemieux said in his ruling Friday.
