The deceased, Elijah Agbo, who hailed from Imirike Agu village in the Udenu Local Government Area of the state, was said to be relaxing in the living room of his house with his wife, Grace, and daughter, Deborah, in the evening of March 5, 2015.
It was learnt that around 9pm, the housewife, Grace, asked the daughter to go to bed. Shortly after Deborah retired to bed, the girl was said to have heard a loud cry from her father. The cry was said to be accompanied with a thud, which reportedly made Deborah to rush to the living room, where she saw her father in a pool of blood.
It was learnt that Grace had used a heavy stick to smash her husband’s head immediately Deborah stepped out of the living room. Elijah was said to have died immediately.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, said the housewife had been arrested. Amaraizu said, “The police have yet to determine why Grace murdered her husband.”
