A 46-year-old man has been arrested for murder after he stabbed his 50-year-old wife to death in an Aizawl neighbourhood, police in Mizoram said Monday.
Lalmuanpuia had stabbed his wife Lalnuntluangi in the abdomen with a kitchen knife during a heated argument on Sunday evening.
The couple was reportedly under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.
Lalnuntluangi was rushed to hospital shortly afterward, but she succumbed to her injuries around 3 am on Monday.
Her body was sent to her native village Baktawng the same day for a funeral while her husband was arrested by police and booked for murder.
The couple has a 16-year-old daughter.
