Senseless morning murder at Koki

By Kila Nao

A suburb in Port Moresby came to a standstill yesterday as the public watched in horror while a husband slashed his wife’s neck from the back in what witnesses describe as cold blood murder. This inhuman and barbaric treatment towards women and wives continue to grip our country in this 21 century.

This mother is yet another victim added to the ever growing list of women being killed by their husbands in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Popular Koki market was the scene of a horrific cold blooded murder last Wednesday.

Market vendors and shoppers got the shock of their life when they witnessed a woman being slashed on the neck by a man with a bush knife that left her head partially hanging as she fell to the ground.

Terrified members of the public stood helpless as the women fell to the ground with her head partially attached to her body while her attacker threatened the public with the bush knife and escaped.

According to eyewitnesses the incident occurred at around 7.30 am at the Koki Betelnut market.

The suspect is believed to be the deceased husband and is in his late 40s. The witnesses said the two who are both from the Southern Highlands Province had an argument and the men just pulled out a tramontina bush knife and swung at the woman’s neck nearly severing her entire head from her body.

The action took the public by surprise which allowed the suspect to escape.

As for the woman she died immediately when she fell to the ground.

Police are investigating the death and the husband will be picked up shortly for the incident.
