Madurai: An Army jawan murdered his wife and four in-laws at A. Thottiyapatti under Nagaiyapuram police station limits near Sedapatti on Monday night.

The police said that P. Kamalakannan (35), who was on leave, is said to have hacked his wife, Gomathi (28), and her parents Chinnasamy (65) and Ramuthai (55), her sisters, Bakkiyalakshmi (35) and Vanaroja (23).
