She took a bottle of liquor and began to sit by the bed, drinking and scolding. The wife drank up a bottle of liquor in just a few minutes, and then continued to pull the quilt repeatedly and scold Zhang Mou.
Before long, Zhang found his wife was drunk. He took out his mobile phone and looked at the pictures. Some of the pictures made him feel impulsive. After that, he had sex with his wife.
Zhang said that after that, his wife began to beat him and scold him, and he pushed his wife. During this period, his wife began to insult his mother constantly, and he felt very uncomfortable. Looking back on the wifes disrespect for her mother, the contradiction between them and the trivial matters of life, I had the idea of killing her at that time. Zhang told the police.

Zhang said that in February 2017, he purchased an insurance policy called One Million Allowances for Our Bank. The beneficiary of survival is his wife, while the insured and the beneficiary of death are Zhang Mou. He remembered that the insurance contract stated that if there was a traffic accident, he would be compensated by one million yuan, which meant that his wife died in a car accident, and he would be compensated by one million yuan.
