husband murders wife
BY NIZBERT MOYO
A 30-YEAR-OLD man from the Bulawayo suburb of Pelandaba has appeared in court charged with murdering his wife on charges of infidelity.
Mchimi Lunga, 30, was not asked to plead murder when he appeared before Western Commonage Judge Shepherd Mjanja.
He was held in custody until May 19.
Prosecutors told the court that Lunga and his wife Nicolah Mabvure, 22, were at home on May 3 when the defendant made allegations of infidelity against his wife.
The problem degenerated into a physical struggle.
In the ensuing hand-to-hand combat, Lunga reportedly took a kitchen knife and stabbed his wife in the neck and stomach. She died on the spot.
Lunga fled the scene, but later returned accompanied by his relatives.
The matter was reported to the police, which led to his arrest.
