The 35-year-old woman who was stabbed by her ex-husband at the Mijlbeke residential care center in Aalst in early August died of her injuries on Sunday. She leaves three children.
The stabbing was the sad culmination of weeks of stalking. Varduhi Harutyunyan, a highly valued worker in the residential care center for years, had been harassed for some time by her 38-year-old ex-husband Artak S., who struggled to accept the divorce. She lived with her children in a sister’s year where Artak S. had reportedly visited several times to get a story. He had also turned up at work in the days before the facts, resulting in a lot of discussion and quarreling. Artak S. would also have threatened her several times.

The day of the facts, Thursday morning 6 August, Artak S. was waiting for his ex-wife before she would start her shift at 8.30 am. Varduhi Harutyunyan had just gotten out of her car when he pulled up to her and another fierce argument ensued. Suddenly, Artak S. pulled out a knife, threw his ex-wife on the hood of a car and stabbed her several times there.
Hit vital organs
Some staff members of the residential care center and a worker from the city of Aalst intervened and managed to pull the Artak S. away, but it soon turned out that Varduhi Harutyunyan was in very bad shape. The stabs had hit vital organs and she was taken to hospital in danger of death. She was kept in an artificial coma for a long time, but died of her injuries on Sunday.
Artak S. is still being arrested. The council chamber in Dendermonde has extended his pre-trial detention on September 8. The public prosecutor’s office has now additionally sued the investigating judge for murder.
