A 62-year-old woman has been arrested in Darwendale on allegations of killing her 81-year-old husband on Sunday following a fight over allegations of infidelity.

Mary Banda is alleged to have fought with her husband Nira Benet (81) who was confirmed dead on arrival at Father O'Hea Hospital from breathing disorders and a report was made to the police, leading to the arrest of Banda.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said Banda and Benet had been fighting when Benet developed challenges in breathing and was rushed to Father O'Hea Hospital.

But he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

In another case, police in Gwanda arrested Thandazani Ncube (31) on allegations that he fatally assaulted his 15-year-old wife over allegations of infidelity.
