George - Authorities have found no evidence linking a George woman, who claimed to have murdered her son, to the fatal stabbing in the Garden Route town.

Western Cape National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said Sabina Biggs, 44, has been charged with defeating the ends of justice after she lied about killing 29-year-old Maurice Biggs in their New Dawn Park, Pacaltsdorp, home in August.

He said Sabina, who is currently out on bail, and another suspect were questioned by police.

"She said that it was her whilst the evidence links [him]," Ntabazalila said.

The man is understood to live in the same Wilger Street house.

Ntabazalila said the two were to appear in the George Magistrate's Court together, but the man had a stroke just before his arrest. He remains hospitalised.

Maurice was killed on August 13 following a scuffle with his mother after the alleged drug addict stole from her.

Southern Cape police spokesperson Captain Malcolm Pojie said the mother claimed to have stabbed her son after a fight broke out when she accused him of stealing her cigarettes and a memory card.

Maurice died at the scene.
