A Butterworth woman alleged killed her boyfriend when he demanded food from her, Eastern Cape police said on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old man insisted the 49-year-old woman make him something to eat shortly after they arrived at their shack in the Skiet informal settlement in Butterworth on Friday evening, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

“When the girlfriend said that she did not cook, a quarrel broke out between the two,” Manatha said.

She allegedly stabbed him in the upper body and went to the Butterworth police station to hand herself over.

She was charged with murder and appeared in the Butterworth Magistrate´s Court briefly on Monday.
