Grandmother accused of hacking husband to death with machete

A GRANDMOTHER hacked her 71-year-old husband to death with a machete because she thought he was seeing other women, a court has been told.
Kamalavati Sundar, 70, pleaded not guilty in the Supreme Court jury in Brisbane today to murdering her husband Ram as he slept in their Woodridge home in December 2005.
Mr Sundar was found lying face-down in bed with at least 14 machete wounds to his head and the top of his arms, prosecutor Angus Edwards told the court, the Courier-Mail reports.

Mr Edwards said the couple appeared to have a happy and loving marriage apart from Mrs Sundar's "jealous streak".

"On the night of the killing it all came to a head," he said.

After a family gathering at the couple's home, Mrs Sundar accused her husband of having an affair with his grandson's maternal grandmother, Mr Edwards said.

He told the jury the Fijian-born man went to bed after telling his wife he intended to leave her because of her constant accusations of infidelity.

"Mr Sundar didn't get the chance to do that because he never woke up."
