A woman was arrested along with her paramour and two others here on Monday for murdering her husband, who was working as a watchman at a private motel on the outskirts of Krishnagiri.

Police said Kannan (60), native of Belupalli village and watchman of a motel on Krishnagiri-Hosur National Highway, was found murdered in a mangrove on December 17. Following this, police registered a case and a special team formed by SP M Ashok Kumardas took up the investigation to track the culprits behind the watchman’s murder. The special team arrested three persons, Swamy, Babu and Vinodkumar, on suspicion in Jingalur village two days ago.

During interrogation, the trio confessed to having murdered the watchman as per the plan hatched by his wife Muniamma (40).

Police said Kannan married Muniamma of Rayakotta 15 years ago after the death of his first wife. Sometime back Muniamma developed an illicit affair with Swamy of Settiyampatti village, who was involved in black magic activities.

Kannan, who came to know about the affair, often quarrelled with Muniamma. Irked by this, Muniamma and Swamy hatched a plan to bump off Kannan. Then the duo engaged Swamy’s co-brother Babu (31) of Kattinayanapalli and his friend Vinodkumar (31) of Satyasai Nagar to finish Kannan. Muniamma pledged her jewels for `8,000 and paid them to murder her husband. As agreed, Swamy, Babu and Vinodkumar murdered Kannan in a mangrove while he was returning home.
