An official said on Thursday that the 32-year-old was killed as she would apparently refuse to work in the field, PTI quoted the official as saying.
According to the police, Jaya Gopal Patond (32), who lived in Dahigaon Avtade under the jurisdiction of Telhara police station, was found dead on Wednesday morning.
Her husband Gopal Sadhan Patond and his parents told the police that she died by suicide.
However, the autopsy report showed that Jaya had been strangled to death, prompting the police to arrest the trio, who then confessed to killing her, the official said.
Quoting the accused, Dnyanoba Phad, in-charge of Telhara police station, said Jaya and Gopal had frequent fights over her refusal to work in the field. This led to the murder, he said.
A case has been registered against the trio under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code.
