POLICE in Mashonaland Central province are hunting for a suspected murderer who killed his pr_gnant girlfriend with a sharp object regardless of her being married to another man.
Fidelis Chido (32) of Galloway farm, Mvurwi is on the run after he st_bbed Sharon Jone (33) on the abdomen with a sharp object.
Mashonaland Central police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe confirmed the case.
“We are hunting for a murder suspect Chido who allegedly st_bbed his eight months pr_gnant girlfriend to death in a domestic dispute while her husband was herding cattle at Galloway farm,” Mundembe said.
Allegations are that Chido visited his pr_gnant girlfriend in the absence of Joseph Farawo (39) husband to the now-deceased Jones.
The love birds had an altercation and Chido fatally st_bbed Jones before fleeing in blood-stained clothes and a blood-stained object.
A witness Innocent Muganhu told NewsDay that they tried to chase after the suspect soon after seeing his blood-stained clothes but could not catch him.
“We saw the suspect coming out of Farawo’s house with blood-stained clothes and object hence I tried to chase after him but failed to catch up with him,” Farawo said.
“I alerted other neighbours and one neighbour Gerald Bvunza entered the room and found Jones’s body in a pool of blood.”
The body was taken to Mvurwi hospital mortuary by the police.
Police are appealing for anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to the nearest police station.-NewsDay
