A Saudi Arabian man suspected his wife was unfaithful and reportedly set her on fire before bludgeoning her to death with a tire iron in front of their children.

According to reports, the man picked up his wife and two young sons from a shopping mall and decided to stop the car on their way home to search his wife's hand bag.

An argument broke out after the man found pieces of paper with phone numbers written on them.

He then reportedly changed direction and drove to a friend's house. There, he got a bottle of liquor before driving out to a secluded area.

After stopping the car, the man allegedly drank half the bottle of alcohol before pouring the rest on his wife. He then set her on fire.

The burns did not kill his wife, however, so he got a tire iron from the trunk of his car and beat her to death with it while their children screamed for mercy.

The young boys watched in shock and horror as their father put their mother's corpse in the trunk of the car and drove home. He brought the body inside the house and waited for police.

The man, who remains unidentified, was arrested when police arrived, but it is not yet known if he has been charged with a crime.
