WITPOORT — Police in Witpoort arrested a 42-year-old man for the alleged murder of his 45-year-old partner. The fight apparently emanated from a domestic violence situation.
According to Warrant Officer Frans Mokoena Lephalale Cluster spokesperson, it is alleged that the two had an argument at their RDP house in Melinda Village on Sunday 25 November. The argument led to a fight and the deceased was assaulted with a wooden stick, which may be the cause of her death.
The suspect was arrested shortly after the incident on a nearby mountain after he fled the scene.
The deceased was found by her daughter who called the police.
The suspect will appear in the Phalala Magistrate’s Court soon.
