A Turkish man killed his pregnant wife by throwing her off a cliff after posing for selfies and then tried to cash in on her life insurance, prosecutors allege.

Hakan Aysal was arrested for murdering his 32-year-old wife, Semra Aysal, and their unborn baby during a vacation in Butterfly Valley in Mugla, Turkey, in June 2018, the Sun reported.

Aysal, 40, allegedly shoved his wife — who was seven months pregnant — off the cliff after they took pictures. She fell 1,000 feet and died instantly, according to the outlet.

After Semra’s death, the husband tried to collect on a life insurance policy he took out for her worth 400,000 Turkish lira, or about $57,000. But he was denied due to a police investigation.
