Kollam: A 28-year-old woman was stabbed to death by her husband at Kundara near here.
Sumina, who is a resident of Keralapuram near Kundara, was attacked by Nishad, 30, on Saturday at a rented house at Edavattom where she was staying with her parents, the police said.
Nishad was overpowered by the neighbours and handed over to the police. He has been admitted to the Kollam District Hospital.
The couple were living separately for the last few months.
The crime took place around 8 pm when Nishad went to Sumina's house. Nishad stabbed his wife with a sharp knife in a fit of rage after an altercation.
