Adelaide (Australia), Aug.28 (ANI): A jealous Indian Australian wife has been charged with killing her husband by setting his penis on fire.
She is expected to answer her murder charge in October.
Rajini Narayan appeared briefly in the Adelaide Magistrates Court today, charged with the murder of her husband.
The mother of three allegedly set fire to her husband Satish Narayan's genitals in December last year. Narayan suffered major burns in the blaze and died several weeks later.
The fire also gutted the family's suburban Unley home leaving a damage bill of a million dollars, news.com reports.
A previous court hearing in January heard Rajini Narayan telling her neighbours: "I'm a jealous wife, his penis should belong to me, I just wanted to burn his penis so it belongs to me and no one else ... I didn't mean this to happen."
The case against Ms Narayan, 44, was adjourned until October 30, when she will answer charges of murder, arson and endangering life. (ANI)
