The Munneerpallam police have arrested a man for murdering his wife.
Police said L. Veeramani (34) of Mela Seval had frequent quarrels with his wife V. Ramalakshmi (31) as he suspected that she had developed an illicit affair.
When an argument broke out between the couple on Wednesday night, Veeramani attacked her with a club.
She suffered grievous injuries and died on the spot.
Since Veeramani’s mother L. Arumugam (57) reportedly helped her son to conceal the crime, the police arrested the lady also.
