A JEALOUS husband who cut his wife's throat because she had started a relationship with another man, will face a retrial after a jury could not decide whether the killing was manslaughter or murder.
After nearly 16 hours of deliberations the jury could not reach an unanimous verdict and Justice Ann Lyons discharged them. Abusoud was remanded in custody pending a retrial.
Earlier, after 10 hours and asking for redirections on the definitions of ``intent`` and ``provocation`` the jury told Justice Lyons they could not agree.
"All that is in my mind is that she is going to take my kids and is sleeping with that man," Abusoud told police in his chilling confession.
"My mind blacked out, I didn't know what to do.
"I went in the kitchen, grabbed two knives and went inside the room.
"All I could see is black in one eye. All I remember is me on top of her, cutting her neck and the kids outside crying.
"I finished and the kids were crying [at the door]. I said 'Don't, don't, don't, don't come in.'
"I tried to calm them down and then I take them to school."
Hoda had been stabbed multiple times in the head and body and her throat was cut "from ear to ear" in a sawing motion, according to prosecutors.

I'm so very sorry for you and your family especially those poor kids. Clearly this is murder in the first degree. I can't begin to imagine how any sane person couldn't see it. What a travesty. Please keep us updated on developments.
You and your family will be in my prayers.
