Woman kills sleeping husband by smashing his head
A 34-year-old woman killed her husband by smashing his head with a grinder stone at their house in Vadipatti near here on Thursday night.
Police said that M. Chellapandi (38) of Kamaraj Colony at Chemminipatti, a soothsayer, used to visit homes on vocation. During such visits, he had befriended many women and maintained illicit relationships with some of them much to the consternation of his wife Selvi (34). The couple have two teenaged children.
Selvi confronted Chellapandi about his activities on Friday. Their children intervened following which Chellapandi went to sleep. Around midnight, an angered Selvi smashed his head with a grinder stone. He died instantly.
Police investigation revealed that Chellapandi had confessed to Selvi that he had fathered a seven-year-old son. This provoked Selvi to murder him.
The body was sent to Government Rajaji Hospital in Madurai for post mortem.
