A 35-year-old woman allegedly hacked her husband to death with a garden hoe on Monday while he was sleeping at the Sivaradi village, situated some 90km south of Rundu.
The deceased was identified as Andreas Semete (39). He died on the spot.
Kletha Sikaki Sivambi made her first appearance in the Rundu Magistrate's Court yesterday before Magistrate William Kasitomo.
State Prosecutor Clara Mwilima objected to bail being granted.
Kasitomo remanded the accused in custody, and advised her to launch a formal bail application if she wants to be released on bail.
The case was then postponed to April 9 for further police investigations and legal aid applications.
Sivambi is facing a charge of murder, read together with the Domestic Violence Act 4 of 2003.
According to the charge sheet, after killing the deceased, Sivambi allegedly dragged his body outside to the back of their house, and placed a shotgun on top of the body to create the impression that he had shot himself.
Relatives found Semete lying in a pool of blood.
