The love of birds landed a Concession man in trouble after he fatally shot his neighbour with a shotgun.
Isaac Mbanje (67) of Esparanza B farm, Concession was not asked to plead to a murder charge before Concession resident magistrate Nixon Mangoti.
Prosecutor Munyaradzi Nengomasha alleged that June 11, Mbanje took his 12 bore shotgun and went to his neighbour's house Michael Chindima accusing him poisoning birds in his maize field.
Mbanje shot the now deceased Chindima on the right thigh and he bled profusely and died on the spot.
The suspect went and filed a police report before leading to the police to the scene where they identified the body and cartridge was recovered on the scene.
