The husband allegedly beat his wife, Jacinta to death after she had tried to stop him from chasing down her alleged lover. The incident took place in Ndubia Inyimaegu community in Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, ASP George Okafor, revealed that the Lagos based James Uguru had been suspicious of his wife's infidelity and promiscuity following rumours which had been making the rounds in the community whenever he's home to visit his family.
The drama had begun while the couple had been having a discussion in the living room before a phone call caused Uguru to head to the room while Jacinta was trying to stop him.
Vanguard reports that as Jacinta tried to restrain her husband, her alleged lover had run out of their bedroom, and upon her attempt to keep him from chasing the culprit, Uguru had taken out his anger on her.
A source revealed:
“He started punching the woman, who eventually collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.”
