A man killed himself after discovering his wife had been having an affair with his best friend, an inquest was told. Zoltan Benedek was found at his home dead less than three months after moving to Hull from his native Romania.
Hull Coroner’s Court heard the 30-year-old’s wife had followed him to the city weeks later at the chance of a better life together, reports Hull Live .
But as soon as they arrived in Britain, she claims Mr Benedek stopped showing her affection and would “not hug or kiss her”.
She then struck up an intimate relationship with Mr Benedek’s best friend because he listened to her and attended to her needs, the hearing was told.
His wife told the inquest via an interpreter on Friday: “I told him about the affair and he suggested we go back to Romania. There was a big argument between us because of that. He seemed very annoyed.”
She added: “He then told me to p*** off and never wanted to see me again.”
The hearing was told his wife disclosed to him two weeks before his death that she was romantically involved with his best friend after “feeling guilty” about her affair.
Her carpenter husband began behaving erratically after hearing the revelations – despite her saying that she wanted to still be with him.
Mr Benedek had called the factory where the pair worked in Hull and told bosses that his partner would not be in because she was going back to Romania.
The pair had a blazing row on the evening before Mr Benedek took his own life at the Ryde Street flat which they shared together.
In their native homeland of Romania, the couple married in 2015 after meeting in a nightclub when they were aged 21.
Police Constable Matthew Gillot said that there was no evidence of foul play or third-party involvement. Concluding the inquest into his death, assistant coroner Lorraine Harris recorded a verdict of suicide.
