PLANO — Friends are mourning the death of Judith Dzwairo, a woman who was allegedly attacked at her home in Plano.

Her husband, Amon Dzwairo, was arrested on Friday and is in custody for aggravated assault.

"The thing that makes me so angry and sad is that she had so much to share, and it's gone," said her former teacher, Jan Blend.

Friends tell News 8 that Judith Dzwairo came from Zimbabwe on a student visa. Blend said she left her kids and husband back home for opportunities in the U.S.

Judith Dzwairo studied sonography at El Centro College. One friend, Holly Wesberry, said that is where she forged a lot of great relationships.

"She was so sweet, and she was selfless, and it was so obvious by the sacrifices she made,” Wesberry said.

Judith Dzwairo was first admitted to a hospital on Friday, and Amon Dzwairo was arrested for aggravated assault coupled with an immigration detainer.

His bond was set at a $250,000.

Judith died on Saturday morning, but Dzwairo's charges have not yet been upgraded. Plano police said they're going to wait for a medical examiner's report before making any changes.

Investigators spent all of Friday and some of Saturday searching through the victim's 2,700 square foot home in the 700 block of Player Drive, near The Courses at Watters Creek.

News 8 asked Judith's friends about if they were aware of any marital problems.

"She wouldn't have burdened anybody with it, and if there were problems, I think her style would be... she would keep it to herself," Jan Blend said.

Amon Dzwairo is being held at the Collin County Detention Center.
