Sunday Chronicle 8 December 2013
New age modern violent woman of PNG
A women stabbed and killed her husband in a domestic dispute and was sentenced to 10 years gaol by the Papua New Guinea court.
Her husband was a campaign manager for a candidate and returned home at midnight. His wife was on her way out to play cards and buy betel nut. He would not allow her to go so she stabbed him.
Her lawyer told the Court that she had suffered some form of assault on the day of the offence. But he could not be specific. It sounds as if he just made up a story. PNG lawyers are like that.
She apologised to the Court and her husband's family for what she had done.
