A lawyer identified as Yewande Oyediran has been accused of stabbing her husband Lowo Oyediran to death.

A Consultant pathologist, Abduldeen Oluwanisola who works with the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan Oyo state, disclosed this when asked about what really transpired between them.

Oluwanisola made this assertion while trying to nitrate the ordeal and testifying before the public.

He said Yewande allegedly stabbed her husband to death at their Akobo area residence in Ibadan.

The accused was subsequently arrested and charged to court, and six prosecuting witnesses had so far testified since the commencement of the trial.

 "Our opinion to the cause of the death is haemorrhagic shock from stab wound sustained from a sharp object," the pathologist said.

Also, in his evidence, Oladeji Olayemi, Investigating Police Officer, IPO, said the defendant had declared in her statement that she did not kill her husband.

According to the IPO, but she agreed to have stabbed him with a pair of scissors.

"She stated that the deceased fell on a knife he was holding and was wounded in the neck when she was struggling to pull herself from the deceased.

"The defendant said the deceased had earlier hit her with a plank while sleeping, and he later picked a knife, and was chasing her within their apartment.

"She said but, she managed to run outside where the deceased fell on the knife," the witness said.

However, Justice Munta Abimbola admitted the said plank, two Ipads and a Samsung cell phone recovered by the police from the couple's apartment as exhibits.

The judge then adjourned the case till Thursday for cross examination of the police inspector.
