MBERENGWA - Police in Mberengwa are investigating a murder case in which a man allegedly used a knife to stab her step-daughter to death before fleeing his home.
The grisly incident occurred in Maromo village under Chief Mataga.
Midlands police spokesperson, Inspector Ethel Mukwende appealed to members of the public with information on the whereabouts of the accused to report to the nearest police station.
“We appeal to members of the public who might have information on the whereabouts of the accused person to report to the nearest police station or make use of suggestion boxes,” Mukwende said.                                                                                                                                         
Sources said Aaron Moyo (44) came home in the night and found his wife Colleta Ncube (38) asleep. He ordered her to leave their bedroom and sleep in the other room where her daughter, the now deceased Tariro Shumba (22), was sleeping.
It is alleged that Moyo, who was armed with a knife, then followed his wife and asked her to leave the homestead altogether.
This led to an argument which forced Shumba to intervene on behalf of her mother, but Moyo picked up a log and hit her all over her body several times.
The two women them managed to flee but the accused chased them, caught the daughter and stabbed her twice with a knife and fled.
Ncube returned and found her daughter alive but bleeding profusely before dying moments later.
The matter was reported to the police who attended the scene and took the body to Musume Mission Hospital.
