PTC Web Desk: A man has been arrested for alleged brutal murder of his wife after she reportedly failed to serve him dinner, the Karnataka police said on Thursday. He allegedly murdered his wife, decapitated her, besides skinning her body.

The woman's body was found lying in a pool of blood in their house. Her veins as well as intestines were visible as the accused had peeled off her skin.

The accused has been identified as Shivarama and deceased as Pushpalatha. The man worked at a sawmill. It is learnt that the couple did not share a cordial relationship and they would often indulge in arguments.

In a fit of rage, Shivarama allegedly stabbed Pushpalatha to death and cut her head with a machine. He also allegedly cut parts of her body. He continued to skin her body until Tuesday evening and later reported the entire matter to his landlord. The couple has an eight-year-old son, who was sleeping at the time of the incident.
