Bloemfontein – A woman was arrested for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death during an argument, Free State police said.

Police spokesperson Constable Peter Kareli said the 25-year-old woman allegedly stabbed Albert Mokitlane, 23, in the chest outside his parents’ house in Rocklands, Bloemfontein, on Sunday evening.  

"The couple had an argument on Sunday evening when they were at the man’s house. It is quite sketchy on what they were fighting about," Kareli said.  

"The parents were there when the incident happened. It is alleged that the two went outside the house and started arguing, which the family described as something [they] normally do.

"A few minutes later, the man came inside the house screaming for help after he was stabbed in the chest. He then fell to the ground and died."

Kareli said the woman disappeared shortly after Mokitlane was stabbed.   

A knife that was allegedly used to stab Mokitlane was found in the neighbour’s yard.  

"We found her hiding at her sister’s place and we arrested her."

Kareli also said this was not the first time the woman had allegedly stabbed Mokitlane.

"The woman once stabbed the man in 2012 in the chest and he was admitted to hospital, but he never reported the case to the police." 

The woman is expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
