Last night police arrested a 62 year old woman in Gugulethu, who fatally stabbed her husband in the neck.
Captain Elliot Sinyangana says that the two were in their home when the woman, who was busy slicing a tomato at the time, took the knife and stabbed him.
“The victim immediately sustained an open wound and started bleeding. It is alleged that she went outside and screamed calling for an aid.”
The man was immediately taken to the nearest hospital for medical attention, but died shortly after, says Sinyangana.
“The victim was certified dead by the KTC hospital. It is alleged that the perpetrator was smelling of alcohol.”
Police have opened a murder docket and preliminary investigations lead to the arrest of the pensioner who is due to appear in the Athlone Magistrate Court.
