Domestic violence: Aliwal North detectives arrest wife for murder

Aliwal North Detectives have arrested the wife of a 33 year old man for murder on 28 September 2019, in Saamwerk Farm. It is alleged that on Friday 27 September 2019, the couple came back from town after an afternoon of shopping, when later in the evening an alcohol induced argument erupted and the 33 year old man struck the suspect with a knobkerrie on the head while she was cooking.

It is then alleged that the suspect retaliated to the assault by throwing a bottle of mayonnaise at the husband. A shard of glass from the bottle cut through the deceased upper right arm, leaving him bleeding profusely.

Medical Emergency Services were called, however, the man refused medical assistance. The couple then continued with their evening of drinking alcohol and then went to sleep. The woman alleged that she then discovered that her husband was dead on the morning 28 September 2019, at 05:00.

The Detectives are still investigating the case. The suspect will make a court appearance on Monday.
