The incident occurred in Bedhachhelu village under Purushottampur police limits in the district.
The deceased have been identified as Prashant Muduli and his wife Jhilli Muduli.
Sources said, Prasant used to pick up quarrels with his wife Jhili in inebriated state as the later was opposing his alcoholic habit.
Last night, a verbal spat broke out between the husband and wife over a family dispute. The quarrel turned ugly as Prashant crushed Jhili’s head with a grinding stone leaving her dead on the spot.
Later, Prashant allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of their house.
On being informed, the police today reached the village and seized the bodies for autopsy.
“We have seized the bodies for post-mortem. The exact reason of the deaths is yet to be ascertained. Further investigation is underway,” a police officer said.
