A 37-year-old soldier was found dead in a bush at Hunters Rest Farm in Ruwa after a dispute with his wife over a cellphone and issues related to infidelity.
Captain Stephen Marimi is believed to have clashed with his wife, Nyarai Kafungura, who is also a soldier.
Kafungura is currently on a tour of duty outside the country.
After the argument, Marimi left home and did not return.
His body was found facing downwards.
An empty beer bottle was found near him by a passerby, who informed the police.
Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, said investigations into the death of Captain Marimi have started.
