Karoi man murders wife over infidelity


A 21-YEAR-OLD Karoi man, who crushed his wife’s head with a stone over infidelity claims, has filed an application for bail at the High Court, saying he committed the offence while in a trance.


Nobert Wine, of Kiyalami Farm, submitted to the High Court on Tuesday that he was in a trance when he unleashed a senseless streak of assaults after he allegedly found his wife Danai Nyikadzino having sexual intercourse with another man.

Wine also submitted that his case be changed from murder to culpable homicide, as he had no intention to kill her. The accused also stated that he only used sticks, not logs, and head butts.

He also said it was not stated that he used a rock, but a stone, a clear indication it was small.

Allegations against Wine are that on December 12 last year, Nyikadzino lied to him that she was visiting a prophet to have her stomach pains healed.

It is alleged Wine followed her and found her in the bush having sexual intercourse with another man.

The State alleges her boyfriend fled the scene and Wine then assaulted Nyikadzino with his feet, sticks and head butts.

He struck her on the head with a stone.

It is alleged Nyikadzino became unconscious as a result of the assaults and Wine tried to resuscitate her. Wine later took her to Karoi District Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

A postmortem was carried out and the doctor concluded that it was a healthy body with an injured head.
