A few hits by a wooden club were enough to break a woman’s life as she assaulted her own husband in a domestic dispute and killed him. On Friday, a 39-year-old Zimbabwean woman was arrested after she had allegedly battered her husband to death with a club in Guruve, Mashonaland Central police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe confirmed.
“I can confirm a murder incident in Guruve, where a woman allegedly murdered her husband in a domestic dispute and investigations are underway,” he advised.
Yvette Dirau willingly cooperates with the police assisting with the investigation into 34-year-old Victor Zirore’s killing.
The police believe that “the now-deceased had a misunderstanding with his wife over an undisclosed dispute and he picked a club, which he used to strike his wife.”
At some moment, the woman had allegedly overpowered her husband, wrested the club from him and then struck him on the head causing a severe skull fracture. The man had lost a lot of blood on the way to hospital and died before the ambulance reached it.
