Man burns his wife after she sent nude photo to another man

By Your Jewish News | January 27th 2013

A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder after burning his wife with a blowtorch in order to teach her lesson not to send naked photos of herself to other men, according to the New York Police Department.

With glazed eyes and a calm demeanor, Carlos Diaz spoke about why he burned his wife in order "to give her a little pain", so the 38-year-old mother, Cathy Zapata, will learn a lesson.

"Now she will worry about our child and take her life seriously instead of focusing on other men," Diaz said during an interview Friday from Rikers Island.
Diaz was arrested earlier this month, after setting the woman on fire in a lot, then soaked his old auto shop with gasoline.

Diaz told news reporters that he erupted when he discovered a nude photo of Zapata, who had recently gotten some cosmetic surgery done, was sent to another man with her cell phone.
"I could not think clearly. I wanted to die," Diaz, 35, glancing nervously at the floor, said. "I had to do something," he added.
