Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the bru­tal death of a woman, who was al­legedly struck sev­eral times with a cane knife by the hus­band, in front of her two-year-old child and par­ents.

The 35-year-old of Navoalevu in Wainikoro in Labasa al­legedly died at the hands of her hus­band over a do­mes­tic

dis­pute, a Po­lice re­port said.

The Po­lice re­port said the vic­tim was at home with her mother and two-year-old child when the sus­pect went to her fa­ther’s house where she had been liv­ing for the past two months.

It said the sus­pect al­legedly turned off the power sup­ply to the house by tam­per­ing with the me­ter box and when the vic­tim came out­side to check, he grabbed her and al­legedly struck her sev­eral times.

The vic­tim man­aged to run in­side the house, but was al­legedly chased by the sus­pect where he con­tin­ued to at­tack the vic­tim and later fled the scene.

He was ar­rested at his home in Daku, Wainikoro, and is now in Po­lice cus­tody.
