Zim woman found stabbed to death in Lidl UK car park as husband, 42, is arrested on suspicion of murder

By John Shammas | The Sun |

A husband has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife after she was found stabbed to death in a Lidl supermarket car park.

Officers detained the 42-year-old man outside the supermarket in Tile Cross, Birmingham, just before 5am this morning.

The woman, Gillian Zvomuya, was attacked with a bladed weapon, police said.

A forensic tent could be seen in the Lidl car park as experts examined the car park.

Cops are also speaking to neighbours while examining local CCTV cameras.

Shoppers arrived this morning to find the store closed.

Detective Chief Inspector Paul Joyce, of West Midlands Police, said: “At around 4.45am our officers traced a vehicle to the car park and found a man and a woman inside.

The couple were reported missing by friends a few hours before the grisly discovery.

Officers confirmed the pair lived in Quinton, Birmingham, – 11 miles from the Lidl car park where the wife’s body was found.

They were reported missing by friends at 2am and their car was traced to the budget supermarket three hours later.

Shopper and gran-of-nine Ann Morris said: “I’ve come to get some flowers because my friend died and just as I got off get bus, I saw all this blue tape.

“I’m shocked because I go to the bingo [opposite] and so do all the old people.

“I come here all the time, it’s a shame.”

Accountant Ed Beck, 26, added: “I was just popping in to get my lunch on the way to work and saw all the police cars.

“You don’t expect to find a police tent covering a dead body in your local supermarket car park.”

“Tragically the woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was arrested on suspicion of her murder.

“While her identity is yet to be confirmed, at this stage we believe her to be the arrested man’s wife.”

Lidl will be closed for the day.

DCI Joyce said her family have been informed and are being supported by trained officers.

He added: “I’d like to extend my deepest sympathies to the woman’s family and reassure them that we are doing absolutely everything we can to provide them with the answers they so desperately need.”

      You are tainting all Zim men criminal due to the actions of one rogues element. I take exception to that and you ought to apologise for being so nasty towards your very own.

      Shall we say all Zim women are wenches as we saw from one Makosi who had sex on bog brother knowing the whole world was watching?

      Why was this woman killed? Until we know that, we won’t understand how extreme the provocation was.

      Let us suppose she was cheating the dude and was caught bedding someone either in the house or in the car. How many men will act rationally when they get in the house to see their wife with someone pumping and all sweaty? I will salute any man who says they will walk away and do nothing.

      Until we know what exactly happened it is hard to understand how a human being can turn into such a devilish character.

        I can’t believe you!!
        1.There is absolutely no excuse to kill, regardless of who is the wrong[“extremes”].
        2. You are concluding that the husband indeed killed his wife,supposedly,really?your assumptions!!
        3. “…I will salute any man who says they will walk away and do nothing.”, what would you do? kill? what does that say about you as a Zim man(if you are)?

        P.S. Unfortunately we won’t get to know what really transpired as the only person who could is nomore.
        Shy away from assumptions and shallowness!!

          I walked in on my partner a few years ago and chikomba vary pakati perusangano rwavo. up to today i thank and praise god he gave me strength to walk away, i didn’t walk away because i was wise enough or i knew better, i don’t know nor explain how i managed to today it but i am grateful to god. therefore don’t speculate upon an opinion based upon emotions. this is something regardless male or female have no control of the situation and how you react as there are a lot of factors which can come into play when you are placed in that situation.
          I don’t think pane munch anomuka achifunga kuuraya mumwe wake,

          RIP my sister no one deserves to have their life cut shot.

          lets build and educate each other as one community to prevent such things from happening.
          there are marriage counselling services, if things are not working please lets walk away than be promiscuous.

          we are all equally responsible for what we do regardless you are a woman or male.

          God bless and forgive and heal the wounded.

          one love

            sorry i realised after i had posted the reply auto correct changed some words i had wrote in shona to a random english word, but I’m sure you are smart enough to get the message. never judge or speak upon something you don’t know about. unless you have been intros shoes then you can have an opinion.

          • WMN
