A wife on Saturday, in Ugbuwangue, Warri, Delta State, hit her husband with the heel of her shoe over allegation of infidelity, killing him in the process.
The mother-of-two struck her husband, Sylvester Etsebanghanro Ighomi, at the back of his head with the shoe.
It was gathered that the couple had engaged in a misunderstanding over alleged infidelity on the part of the deceased.
It was learnt that the woman had approached her husband where he sat and struck him with her shoe heel in the back of his head from behind. He fainted and began to foam from his mouth and died before he could reach the hospital.
It is in doubt if the deceased was legally married to the woman or fulfilled all the marriage rites on her. But the deceased had lived with her and the children, a community source said.
The suspect has been detained by the police as at the time of this report.
Meanwhile, friends of the deceased have taken to Facebook to mourn him.
