Thane: A tribal man allegedly killed his wife as he was miffed with her for not being able to conceive during their 15 years of marriage, police said on Sunday.

The couple, residing in a hut at a farm in Dahanu taluka of Thane district, had frequent quarrels over the issue and because of it they were not on good terms, Dahanu police station Sub-Inspector P G Patil said.
