Pretoria - A Pretoria woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of her husband, police said on Thursday.

Captain Doniah Mothutsane said the man was shot dead on Wednesday night at their home on Plot 17, Welbekend.

"Police were called to the home where they found an old man in his blue working suit lying on the floor and a .38 revolver with 43 live rounds on the bed," said Mothutsane.

Police said the 39-year-old wife seemed dazed when they spoke to her, and neighbours said there had been numerous incidents of domestic violence at the house.

The woman was expected to appear in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate's Court on Friday on a charge of murder.
