A university lecturer was allegedly murdered by a student after she she caught cheating in a law exam. Hasan Ismail Hikmet, 23, is accused of stabbing then shooting Ceren Damar Senel, a research assistant at Cankaya University in the Turkish capital city of Ankara.
The 27-year-old died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics who were called by horrified eyewitnesses.
Hikmet later gave himself up to police officers who claim he went home to get the gun of his father, a retired police officer, before returning to shoot the academic.
He allegedly told them he decided to kill Ms Senel after she refused to be dissuaded from launching an investigation into him for cheating in the law exam.
Hikmet allegedly called his parents to tell them what he had done after the incident and his father went with him to a local police station.
Cankaya University later released a statement to say the law exams, which had been scheduled for January 3, 4 and 5, had been postponed until later in the month.
