A man who was extremely angry that his wife got pregnant by her former husband, decided to kill her with an ax, police in Zimbabwe said.

Gokwe police said that Nkululeko Mlotshwa, killed his wife, Stabile Dube, after she became pregnant by her former husband.

After killing his wife, Mlotshwa committed suicide. According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Monday night.

Neighbors found Dube dead in her home on Tuesday around 3:00 p.m., after seeing a bloody ax outside her home. Dube had two children with her former husband.

Dube was in the late stages of pregnancy at the time of her death, and it is believed that the former husband got her pregnant.

After divorcing her first husband four years ago, Dube married Mlotshwa. The couple did not have any children together.

Feeling desperate for more children, Dube secretly hooked up with her former husband in order to get pregnant. On Monday, Mlotshwa received a tip off that his wife’s former husband entered his home.

Mlotshwa rushed home and found his wife having sex with her former husband. The former husband fled from the scene before Mlotshwa grabbed an ax and killed his wife.

Mlotshwa killed himself by hanging.
