By ZBC Reporter

A domestic dispute turned fatal with a man from Marange committing suicide after killing his ex-wife’s three month old baby, following a misunderstanding between the estranged couple.

It is alleged that on Wednesday, Weston Chikukwa and his 17 year old ex-wife had a misunderstanding with Chikukwa accusing her of rushing into another marriage after their separation.

Chikukwa is alleged to have stabbed his ex-wife with a knife four times before she escaped and then he turned his anger on the teen mother’s three month old baby whom he stabbed three times. 

The infant died on admission in hospital while the teen mother who sustained serious injuries is receiving treatment at Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital.

Chikukwa was found dead at his home after allegedly committing suicide.

Zimbabwe Republic Police Manicaland Provincial Spokesperson, Inspector Luxson Chananda, who confirmed the incident, warned the public against resorting to violence when they have differences.
