A Durban woman shot her husband twice after they got into an argument over a meal she was meant to prepare.

Zaheera Bunting, who said she was ill and unable to cook, was found guilty of attempting to murder her 36-year-old husband, Brent Smit, on Friday.

The Sunday Tribune is reporting that the 56-year-old woman is due to appear before Magistrate Anand Maharaj at the Durban Regional Court for sentencing tomorrow.

“I’m very pleased with the judgment, I could have been killed,” Smit said of his gun-toting wife.

The couple have been married for 19 years, but neighbours said their relationship had been tumultuous throughout, and their spats were usually hot topics of gossip at the block of flats where they lived.
