Johannesburg - A 35-year-old woman has been stabbed to death, allegedly by her boyfriend, in Boikhutso near Lichtenburg, North West police said on Wednesday.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said Mirriam Leinane was stabbed to death on Tuesday, after an argument with her boyfriend.

She said the couple stayed together at the nearby informal settlement. Leinane's brothers took her home on Friday as they were not happy with the relationship.

"On Tuesday, the suspect met with the victim when she was on her way to the nearby shops.

An argument ensued and the suspect stabbed the victim with a knife in the left side of her chest."

Leinane died on the scene and her 26-year-old boyfriend was arrested.

He was expected to appear at the Lichtenburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
