Kamakhyanagar: A man killed his wife and dumped her body in a pond over marital discord in Jatia village under Parjang police limits in Dhenkanal district on Thursday night.

The incident occurred late last night after Madhusmita quarrelled with her husband Sushant over some petty issue. As the quarrel escalated into a heated argument, Sushant thrashed the victim brutally in a fit of rage killing her on the spot.
