A woman was arrested on a charge of murder after killing her pastor husband because he answered a phone call from another woman while they were spending time together, according to police in Nigeria.

Now, 28-year-old Mary Attah of Delta, has been sentenced to death by hanging after being convicted of murder in connection with the death of Pastor Darlington Attah.

According to the police investigation, Mary, who was married to Darlington and had four children, attacked her husband with a kitchen knife and stabbed him in the neck, following a phone call from his lover.

The court was told that Mary became enraged by the phone call at a time when they were having dinner together, which prompted her to run to the kitchen.

She brought back a knife and smeared chili pepper in the face of her husband to demobilize him before stabbing him in the neck.

Mary then doused gasoline on her dying husband and set him on fire. He was rushed to the Warri Central Hospital, where he died of his injuries.
