A 30 YEAR OLD woman of Rescourse area in Kitwe has been arrested by police for allegedly stabbing her husband to death with a knife after she caught him having sex with her young sister.
Copperbelt province commissioner of police Charity Katanga has told Mwebantu in an interview. She said the incident occurred on Tuesday around 19.00 following a heated argument between the couple.
Mrs Katanga identified the woman as Gertrude Chinyama while her husband has been identified as Muvunga Chinyama.
“The reports we got are that the woman allegedly found her husband in a sexual act with her young sister and this incensed her. So she got a knife and stabbed her husband who died instantly,” Mrs Katanga said.
She said the suspect was apprehended by the neighbours who rushed to the couple’s house upon hearing some noise.
Mrs Katanga said Mr Chinyama’s body is lying in the Kitwe Central hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.
