A HEAVILY pregnant woman was allegedly shot and killed by her police husband on Monday at Makonone village near Thohoyandou after a dispute.

It is alleged that the policeman packed all his belongings and left the family after his wife refused to leave the couple's house.

The police officer had allegedly accused his wife of cheating on him. The man, however, returned home on Sunday. The police officer then allegedly shot his wife, Thivhonali Mugwedi, 28, repeatedly in front of their son in the couple's two-roomed house at about 1am on Monday.

Limpopo police spokesperson Motlafela Mojapelo said the off-duty cop, who is behind bars, used his service pistol to kill his wife.
