A woman has been arrested by the police after she brutally killed her boyfriend by hitting him with an empty beer bottle on the forehead several times.
30-year-old Winnet turned violent, accusing her late boyfriend, Simon (33) of infidelity after the deceased had received a phone call. The infuriated Winner was eager to know the identity of the caller but her boyfriend failed to answer her. This resulted in the bottle assault.
Police confirmed the murder which happened on December 22 at a bottle store in Chikanga.
Police spokesman said: "The couple was drinking beer at around 7.30 pm when Simon received a phone call from an unknown person. Winnet quizzed him over who had called but Simon could not give a satisfactory answer. A quarrel ensued and the accused picked an empty beer bottle and hit him several times on the forehead. She went on to assault him. He was ferried to Mutare General Hospital, Zimbabwe where he was admitted after he had lost a lot of blood."
He was later released on December 26 after his health condition improved. However, the following day he started complaining of a headache.
"We urge couples to solve disputes amicably. The couple should have easily talked this issue over rather than resorting to fighting. We also advice partners not to be jealous since it may result into something nasty if not properly handled," the police spokesman said.
