Late on Friday night, the couple fought over the same issue and Roshan went out and brought a knife and kept it with him in the house.
Latha informed Yuvaraj about the knife, after which he reached their house and engaged in an argument with Roshan. During this, Yuvaraj pushed Roshan on the ground and Latha stabbed him multiple times in the abdomen resulting in his death, police said. The two were produced before court and remanded in judicial custody.
