Johannesburg – A 40-year-old woman was stabbed to death at her home in Mboya Village, Willowvale, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

The woman was found by neighbours on Saturday at 17:00, police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said.

"Community members became concerned when they could not see her during [Saturday] morning. When one of the community members finally checked [on] her through the window, it was then that she was found murdered," said Manatha.

It is believed her killer used the window to gain entrance as the door was still locked, he said.

The woman suffered upper body injuries.

No arrests have yet been made. Anyone with information was asked to contact Willowvale police on 047 499 1049 or Crime Stop 08600 10111.
