Northern Province Division Criminal Investigations Officer Mubita Nawa has confirmed the development to ZANIS and named the deceased as Justine Siwakwi 36 and the woman as Dynes Nalavwe 35.

Mr Nawa revealed that police found Siwakwi hanging from a roof beam in his bedroom after writing a note whose content has been withheld while his wife was found dead on the bed with a string around her neck.

Mr. Nawa explained that the incident occurred yesterday around 10:00 hours when information reached the police that the two were found dead in their matrimonial home.
