Man described as "drunken beast" threatens to kill pregnant wife

A man described as a “drunken beast” beat his six-months pregnant wife until she blacked out and told people to leave her to die.

The beating followed a demand from Falaniko Sefo Mano, 35, of Utuali’i, Samoa for his 25-year-old wife to cook him some food after he came home drunk.

When family members tried to intervene to stop the beating, he chased them away saying “if she dies she dies.”

And while the victim was cowering to protect herself and her unborn baby, the defendant tried to kick her in the stomach.
