A 30-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife, free state police said this Tuesday, afternoon.
He allegedly stabbed and killed the 28-year old woman at a tarven in ThabaChu after accusing her of having an affair with another man, Constable Peter Kareli said.
“It is alleged that the couple had an argument in the early hours of Tuesday about cheating and the matter was not resolved” Kareli said.
On Saturday evening, the man went to the local tarven and found his wife sitting with friends. He forced her outside where he allegedly stabbed her twice on the stomach.
He then searched his wife and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, a wedding ring and a cell phone. He was later arrested at his home.
He is to appear in the Thaba ‘Nchu magistrate court soon.
