|Norbert Chikerema has been sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of murdering his wife|
Chikerema, 42 was told by the Birmingham Crown Court he would serve a minimum of 22 years after he struck Nyasha Kahari, a mother of four, at least 40 times with numerous weapons, including an axe, before driving her body to Lidl in Tile Cross.
The court heard previously that Chikerema and his wife, also known as Gillian, ran a nursing home business and that he believed she was seeing another man.
On January 29 this year they visited a number of addresses, leaving the last one at 11pm and shortly afterwards the defendant attacked his wife.
She had been sitting in the front seat of their Nissan and he used an axe to strike his wife over and over again aiming principally at the head and neck.
Stephen Davies, District Crown Prosecutor with West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Unable to cope with his belief that his wife was having an extramarital affair, Norbert Chikerema armed himself with an axe, took his wife to an unknown location and launched a frenzied and fatal attack on her.
“This was a premeditated killing where the defendant had taken weapons with him to the scene and used them to commit the crime.
“Our thoughts are today with the family and friends of Nyasha Kahari.”
Chikerema had previously employed a private detective to follow his wife and during the course of that morning had sent a video to a number of family friends of her meeting another man who he knew.
He attacked cars of two men he believed had been seeing his wife with the axe before eventually driving to a Lidl supermarket in Mackadown Lane and phoned police at around 4am.
Chikerema, 42, of Overdale Road, Quinton, had denied murder and it was claimed he was suffering from an abnormality of mind function at the time. THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED?
