A woman allegedly killed her alcoholic husband after he harassed her after coming home drunk, here on Monday night. The woman was arrested on Tuesday while trying to bury her husband’s body with her son’s help.

Muthupaiyan (40), a mason from Aatyamapatti, tied the knot with Maheswari (38) 18 years back. Muthupaiyan, a drunkard, used to harass his wife and the couple lived separately for five years, police sources said. Two months back, he patched up with his wife.

On Monday night too, the man came home drunk and quarrelled with Maheswari. Unable to stand the torture, Maheswari pushed him down, allegedly crushed his head with a stone, killing him. With the help of her son Srinivasan, she planned to discreetly bury the body at the village graveyard. 

Meanwhile, neighbours who got wind of the incident alerted the police. As the police approached them, both attempted to flee, but were soon caught. Eight persons, including Maheswari, her son and kin, were arrested.
