Madurai: In a shocking incident resulting from a marital dispute, a woman set fire to her in-laws house burning her husband and six other family members charred to death in the wee hours of Wednesday at Kumarapuram district in Tamil Nadu.

Dispute between husband and wife was suspected to be the reason behind the act, Police Inspector Manoharan said. Kannan (27) and Pandeeswari (25) were married few years ago but were living separately following some differences for the last one year.

Few days ago, some villagers attempted to reunite the couple and asked Kannan, who was staying in Chennai, to return to the village.
