The love birds had an altercation and Chido fatally stabbed Jones before fleeing in blood stained clothes and a blood stained object.

A witness Innocent Muganhu told NewsDay that they tried to chase after the suspect Soo after seeing his blood stained clothes but could not catch him.

"We saw the suspect coming out of Farawo's house with blood stained clothes and object hence I tried to chase after him but failed to catch up with him," Farawo said.

"I alerted other neighbours and one neigbiur Gerald Bvunza entered the room and found Jones's body in a pool of blood."

The body was taken to Mvurwi hospital mortuary by the police.
