A Glen Norah woman burnt her husband with cooking oil after he failed to give her money for provisions, a Harare court heard over the weekend.
Renilde Charamba was not asked to plead when she appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi who remanded her in custody to today for bail application.
The court heard that on September 3, Charamba’s husband Hilton Gumbeya arrived home from the bar drunk.
Charamba reportedly started demanding money from her husband but he refused and went to bed.
As he was in bed, Charamba reportedly folllowed with hot cooking oil and poured it over his face, neck, chest and back.
