Autopsy report shows wife died from respiratory seizure

Earlier rumours had it that the accused beat his wife to death after discovering that she had been having an extra marital relationship with her boss.

Lekan and Ronke Shonde

This was confirmed on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, by Punch Metro.

News agencies had earlier reported that Lekan Shonde allegedly beat Ronke to death after discovering that she was having an affair with her boss identified as Kayode.

Shonde's alleged violent history against Ronke, put forward by her sister, Bolatito, almost made it certain that the deceased died from domestic violence.

The accused, Lekan Shonde, made the decision to surrender himself to the police based on persuasion from close friends.

He however maintained his innocence concerning the accusation that he killed his late wife, stating that he returned home to find her lying face down.
