Man bashed wife to death with concrete bollard

A Brisbane man who bashed his wife to death with a concrete bollard after a fight over infidelity has been found guilty of manslaughter.

Sandra Peniamina, a mother of four, was stabbed 29 times with a knife then beaten with a concrete bollard when she tried to escape, before dying in the driveway of the family’s Kippa Ring home in March 2016.

A jury today found her husband, 41-year-old Arona Peniamina, guilty of her manslaughter.

A previous trial had found him guilty of murder but after an appeal in the High Court he was granted a new trial on the grounds provocation should be been considered as a defence.

Peniamina claimed his wife had armed herself with a knife and that he later wrestled it from her and lost control, using it to repeatedly stab her.

The tip of the blade was found in her skull.

The altercation stemmed from an argument over infidelity.

Peniamina wept in the dock today when the jury handed down a verdict of guilty to manslaughter.

He had offered to plead guilty to manslaughter at the start of the trial but the Crown rejected the plea.

Peniamina will be sentenced next month.

The maximum sentence for manslaughter in Queensland is life imprisonment.
