A Humansdorp woman was arrested for allegedly killing her boyfriend after a fight over an ex-lover on Saturday, Eastern Cape police said.
The couple were arguing around 14:00 “when she subsequently became angry and struck him with a bottle on the head and then strangled him with a headwrap”, said Sergeant Majola Nkohli.
“It is believed that an argument was about the suspect’s ex-boyfriend who visited her the previous day.”
The 36-year-old man from George died at the scene. His name was being withheld until his family had been notified.
The 45-year-old woman was arrested, charged with murder and expected to appear in the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
