Arrest in fatal stabbing

A woman was arrested in Addo yesterday after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death with a broken bottle.

Police spokeswoman Captain Gerda Swart said the incident occurred on a farm in Sunlands, between Addo and Kirkwood, when the woman, 42, had an argument with her 44-year-old boyfriend.

“It is not clear what the argument was about, but at about 2pm the suspect stabbed the victim in the neck with a broken bottle head. He died at the scene and she was detained shortly after the incident,” Swart said.

The woman is expected to appear in the Addo Magistrate’s Court on a charge of murder today.
