Man Kills Wife Accusing Her Of Stealing His Money
A Shurugwi barber is on the run after he allegedly stabbed his wife to death accusing her of stealing his money.
The incident happened at the couple’s Makusha lodgings yesterday.
It is alleged that at around 7am the deceased Audrey Chikoka (21) and her husband Simbarashe Majasi were asleep in their room when Majasi reportedly accused the former of stealing his money. A misunderstanding arose and Majasi picked a piece of wood and hit his wife with it at the back of the head, once on the right jaw and once above the left eye and she fell to the floor.
The Landlady, Sithembile Mpofu (48) heard the noise and knocked at the door to find out what was happening.
The accused unlocked the door and got out of the room, locked it from outside and told the landlady that he was proceeding to make a report against the now deceased. The landlord peeped through the window and reportedly saw the lifeless body of the deceased lying on the floor.
A passerby had to kick down the door for entry and Chikoka was taken to Shurugwi District Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The accused is still at large Masvingo Mirror reports.
