Thiruvananthapuram: A man allegedly stabbed a 58-year-old woman to death near Kothamangalam on Wednesday. Police said that the accused was the victim's neighbour.

According to the report, the victim identified as Mary was killed by the accused Kunjimohammed (63) while she was collecting latex in her rubber plantation.

Police said that the victim was found dead with injuries in her neck by her family members.

Reportedly, the accused, who was also a rubber-tapping worker at the deceased's rubber plantation, has been arrested. During the investigation, the accused admitted to the crime. Further investigation is underway to ascertain the motive behind the attack, police said.

In another incident, a 19 -year-old woman's body was found stuck 120 feet above the ground in a 1.5-foot space between two high-rise residential buildings on Tuesday. Police suspected it to be a suspected murder case. The incident was reported from Amrapali Silicon society in Sector 76 in the morning, after which a team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) was deployed to bring down the body, they said.

The deceased hailed from Katihar district in Bihar and worked as a domestic help in a married couple's house in the same society. She had gone missing since June 28, stated a police official.
