Husband who beat his wife to death for “cooking the wrong meal” gets up to life

NEW YORK – A Brooklyn man was sentenced to 18 years to life in prison for beating his 66-year-old wife to death for “cooking the wrong meal”.  The defendant was convicted last month following a bench trial. 

Noor Hussein, 75, of 1025 East 14th Street, in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, was today sentenced to 18 years to life in prison by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Matthew D’Emic, who convicted the defendant of second-degree murder last month following a bench trial. 
 
“This defendant viciously attacked his wife as she lay in bed, unable to defend herself,” said Kings County District Attorney Kenneth Thompson.  “The judge has spoken and now the defendant has been held accountable for this brutal and cowardly act.”

According to trial testimony, on April 3, 2011, inside of their Midwood apartment, the defendant viciously beat his wife, Nazar Hussain, to death as she lay in bed, most likely asleep. His actions caused massive head trauma that led to a fatal brain hemorrhage. When her body was later examined by the Medical Examiner’s Office, it was determined that she had been struck more than 20 times about her head, face and arms.

The defendant told police that he disciplined his wife earlier in the night because she cooked the wrong meal, but that she was unharmed when they went to bed. Neighbors, however, heard the defendant verbally and physically abuse his wife for years, according to testimony.
