Dad kills his two children and himself after wife admits cheating at work party

A husband killed himself and his two young children hours after his wife had confessed to cheating on him at a party.

Fazyl Khalikov, 37, had called his 31-year-old wife Galiya repeatedly through the night as she celebrated at a Christmas bash with colleagues in oil-rich Ufa, Russia.

She did not answer but when she returned home in the morning, the wife admitted having sex with a workmate and told him she wanted a divorce according to law enforcement reports.

Galiya said she had not had the "guts" to tell him earlier.

The married couple drove around the city together talking, before saying he wanted to take the kids for a walk.

Khalikov drove them to a remote village 120 miles away where he is said to have killed them.

He messaged his brother saying: "My wife cheated on me, she confessed today. She told me she loved another man and they had sex at their corporate party.

“Goodbye, I'll take the kids with me."

He called his wife to tell her son Askar, six, and 18-month-old daughter Ayana were about to die.
