Durban - A KwaMashu woman was bludgeoned to death late on Monday night, allegedly by her boyfriend who had accused her of having an affair.

It is alleged that the man, armed with a rock, had struck his lover repeatedly at the home the two shared in the township’s J-Section.

A source close to the investigation, who could not be named as he is not authorised to speak to the media, said the woman's half naked body was found lying in the gutter along Mthombothi Road.

“She had massive head wounds from a rock and her face was covered in blood. It looks like the domestic altercation had started inside a house and then spilled onto the street and she finally fell onto the road. She was naked from the waist down,” the source said.

Her alleged attacker, 47, was arrested at the scene and was scheduled to make his first appearance at the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on a murder charge.

Police spokesperson Thulani Zwane confirmed the arrest, but could not be drawn to comment on the motive for the killing.
