45-yr-old woman taken from husband, shot in head

A horror-stricken Charlieville community is in shock after a 45-year-old woman was shot and killed in her own home, while her husband remained helpless in another room. 

According to reports, Alisha Mohammed was at home with her husband at John Peter Road, Charlieville, around 4:00 am Wednesday morning when intruders broke into their home.

The couple heard a loud crashing noise, and then an armed man broke into their bedroom, broke up the couple and tied them up in separate rooms. 

Mohammed's husband said he then heard several loud explosions, following which he heard the sound of the assailant leaving the house.

When he was eventually able to free himself of the bonds, he found his wife dead.

She appeared to have been shot in her head.

Police are continuing investigations.
