(The Weekly Vice) - Kurtis Worley, a 33-year-old Illinois man, was jailed Friday after he allegedly stabbed his wife to death because she refused to have sex with him "one last time" before their divorce.
According to police, Worley became distraught when his wife told him that she intended to seek a divorce from him. Those feelings boiled over into rage when he asked her to have sex with him one last time, and she refused his request.
In retaliation, Worley jumped on top of his wife, 39-year-old Martha Worley, and began beating her as she slept. He then allegedly grabbed a knife and began stabbing his wife in the head with it.
Martha Worley's 15 and 12-year-old sons heard their mother's screams and attempted to enter the locked master bedroom where the stabbing was taking place.
At one point Worley opened the door while "naked and looking like a psychopath," according to the arrest report.
When the older boy attempted to push past his step-father to attend to his mother, Worley used the knife to slash the boy's throat. Both boys retreated from the room, armed themselves and attempted to re-enter the locked bedroom. When they were unable to get through the door, they called 911.
Officers arrived at the scene at about 3 a.m. to find Martha Worley lying face down in a blood soaked bed. Kurtis Worley was found lying on the floor after he slit both of his wrists in a failed attempt to commit suicide.
Two bloody knives were recovered from the scene.
Martha Worley was rushed to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. Her son was also taken to a local hospital where he received emergency surgery for his injuries.
Prosecutors say the boy will require physical therapy to regain his ability to speak.
Kurtis Worley was booked into jail and charged with first-degree murder. He remains held in lieu of $3 million bond.
The couple had been married for about a decade and shared a 9-year-old daughter.
