Cop who ‘killed’ girlfriend claims she wanted to stab him & woman she caught him with

The Eastern Cape police officer who allegedly shot dead his girlfriend on Sunday morning is expected to make his first appearance in the Motherwell Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday morning.

The 39-year-old Constable is charged with the murder of his 43-year old girlfriend, whom he had allegedly been living with.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) spokesperson Grace Langa said it is alleged the 43-year-old returned home on Sunday morning and found the police officer “sleeping” with a 26-year-old in their house.

“It is alleged that an argument ensued, and the woman (deceased) wanted to stab the 26-year-old, and the police officer prevented her from doing so.

“It is further alleged she then wanted to stab him. It is alleged that, in his defence, he fired shots at her, and she died at the scene.”

Langa said the victim’s family had been informed, and the post-mortem would be conducted on Tuesday.

The country is currently observing the 16 Days of No Violence against Women and Children campaign.
