A 27-year-old newlywed was murdered by her husband last Friday evening in South Ozone Park, police said. 

The husband was found dead, hanged from a tree in Spring Creek Park in Howard Beach, an apparent suicide, shortly after the murder was discovered.

Doone Dojoy, a bartender at Gemini’s Ultra Lounge on Liberty Avenue, was found stabbed to death after her husband texted family members Friday night and confessed he'd killed her. 

The husband, Dinhwar Budhidat, 33, told the family members they could find a key to the home under a planter on the porch, police said.

The couple were married last July, according to posts on Dojoy's Facebook account which showed photos of the ceremony.

A report in the New York Post said the wife had moved out of the home they shared last September due to Budhidat's extreme jealousy and anger problems.

She agreed last Friday to return to the house  at 109-19 132 St. to watch a movie with Budhidat, the Post reported.

Police, who were summoned immediately after the texts were received, discovered Dojoy's body just before 8 p.m. 

The senseless murder-suicide was remarkably similar to the Richmond Hill murder of Stacy Singh, a 26-year-old mother of two, who was stabbed to death in January 2018 by her husband, who then took his own life in a nearby park.
