The accused has been identified as Mangudu Khil of the same locality.
Police said, a verbal duel erupted between Mangudu and his wife and the deceased Tulsa on Friday night over a long-standing family feud. As the argument escalated further, the accused took out a sharp knife and stabbed his wife multiple times to kill on the spot.
Getting information on the murder, Nandapur Police led by Kapileswar Behera rushed to Mangudu’s house immediately and arrested him post seizing the weapon of the crime.
Tulsa’s body was later sent to a nearby hospital for autopsy.
