A 42 year-old man has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment, with a non parole period of five years for raping his wife.

According to the complainant, her mother-in-law began to speak ill of her to others.

Her mother-in-law and brother-in-law complained that the couple’s four teenage children were eating a lot thereby straining the family’s finances.

This led to heated arguments between the couple.

A quarrel led to the rape that took place on the 14th of March last year where the perpetrator assaulted his wife before and after he raped her with a spray bottle.

A permanent domestic violence order has also been ordered by the Court for the safety of the complainant.
