Welkom woman hides murdered husband

2012-06-14 21:36

Bloemfontein - A Free State woman reported her husband missing after allegedly killing him and locking him away in a storeroom, police said on Thursday.

She was arrested this week and would appear on a charge of murder in the Welkom Magistrate's Court on Friday, along with her gardener, spokesperson Sergeant Puleng Motsoeneng said.

Her 37-year-old husband was stabbed, apparently during a domestic dispute on Sunday. Police were investigating the possibility that the husband hit his 30-year-old wife with a pipe before he was killed.

The couple were eating in the bedroom when a fight broke out. Motsoeneng said it appeared the woman wrapped the man’s body in a sheet and pulled him to an outside storeroom. Three days later she reported him missing to Welkom police.

When police went to the couple's house this week they found the gardener cleaning blood stains off the pavement. He told them it was the blood of a sheep he had slaughtered.

Motsoeneng said police searched the house, but found nothing.

A policeman noticed blood stains on the rubbish bin next to a storeroom.

The man's body was found when the room was searched.

He had a stab wound to the neck, and burns on one hand.

    Murder, hide body, call police and only then clean up the blood trail. I wonder if the police are capable of cracking this meticulously planned crime.

      hadjie.smith.3 - 2012-06-19 00:37

      i wonder why,she had all the time in the world to clean it why call them knowing fully well that she hasn't cleaned the blood trail.

    am sure that the husband was very abusive and the woman was pushed to the limit,domestic violence is bad lets talk things out and not fight.

      anne.canham - 2012-06-16 09:40

      Sorry you are so wrong. I know them personally. She was a prostitute and very abusive. He was the most polite gentleman I ever knew. I had one of their kids in my class.

    As a matter of interest: Domestic crimes are on the rise in Welkom and so is crime and murder directed at foreigners and much is due to house breaking etc and crimes related to the theft of gold.
