The initial investigation was the car accident.
A 36-year old male dead from a head on collision on a Melbourne road in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police were called to the head on and found the driver of the car dead.
When they went to the home of the dead man, Sunil Beniwal, which he shared with two other adult relatives, they never expected to find this.
His estranged wife, Shikha Godara Beniwal also dead. Their three-year old son asleep in his bed.
Tragically it has now been reported that Shikha Beniwal had taken out an intervention order against her husband that expired just four days earlier.
Her estranged husband, Sunil Beniwal, is understood to have killed Shikha before deliberately driving his car into a truck in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The couple’s three-year-old son was in the house at the time of the suspected murder and was heard crying overnight by a neighbour.
News Limited report that one housemate said he was under the impression the couple, from New Delhi, were trying to resurrect their marriage.
Police told News Limited there was an intervention order taken out in 2012.
