A 40-year-old man killed his wife and her alleged paramour at Krishnapuram area in the wee hours of today, police said.
V Ramu, a daily wage worker, used a crowbar to smash the heads of V Sandhya Rani (26) and K Rambabu (45), said police.
The accused was upset over his wife having an affair with Rambabu, police said.
The incident took place in the jurisdiction of Nathavaram police station.
Ramu had married Sandhya Rani around eight-years ago and the couple has a son, said police.
However, Sandhya Rani since last year was having an affair with Rambabu, said police.
Though Ramu had asked his wife to mend her behaviour, she ignored the warnings and continued the relationship, said police.
Ramu later fled the spot and the police have launched a manhunt to nab him.
