Chennai: A scrap shop owner allegedly killed his wife at Kelambakkam, following a fight which broke out between the couple around midnight.

Michelle Raj and his wife Jayarani (24) resided in Kaipathur village with their four children. The couple had frequent quarrels in their home.

Last night, the fight became intense and after Jayarani went to sleep, her husband threw a 25 kg weighing stone over her.

Alarmed by Jayarani’s screams, the neighbours alerted the police. Jayarani was immediately taken to Chengalpattu Government Hospital where she was declared dead. Michelle was arrested by the police.

The reason behind the fight is yet to be ascertained. It can be noted that in a similar incident, a 30 year old man killed his wife and his eight month old boy at Sholinganallur suspecting extra marital affairs, last Sunday.
