Wife, lover arrested for murder of husband

A woman and her lover have been arrested in connection with the murder of her husband, a newspaper employee, police said.

The employee was found dead with his throat slit on December 2 at nearby Anavathil when he was on his way for work at night, they said.

The duo, who had become close for the past few years, had hatched the plan to murder him at the temple town of Guruvayur, where they used to go regularly, police said, adding they were arrested yesterday.

The death was first considered a hit-and-run accident. But post mortem revealed a deep neck wound as the cause of injury.
