Bengaluru, Jan 14: A man is accused of killing his brother's widow during a quarrel on dinner in Nelamangala on the southern outskirts of Bengaluru.
Gangaguddaiah, the suspect, came home on Friday and picked a quarrel with Padma, who was married to his deceased brother. He bludgeoned her with a club, killing her instantly.
Padma's screams drew neighbours to the house. Seeing her lying in a pool of blood, they called the Nelamangala rural police who arrived at the spot and caught Gangaguddaiah. Padma's body was later shifted for post-mortem.
Padma, a resident of Lakkasandra, had been living with Gangaguddaiah after her husband passed away five years ago. She would cook the food and do the household chores. Police said they were investigating the motive behind the murder.
