A 36-year-old woman was hacked to death by her husband at Jalmalakunta Thanda of Penpahad Mandal in Suryapet district during the intervening hours of Friday-Saturday.
Nunavath Saroja was attacked by her husband Swamy with an axe when she was sleeping in the house. She died on the spot in the incident.
Swamy also killed his father Bikhya four months back over suspicion that he had an extra-marital relation with his wife. He came out of jail about four days ago on bail.
The police reportedly took Swamy into custody.
