KwaZulu-Natal - A woman who allegedly stabbed her lover to death following an argument will appear in the Chatsworth Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, KwaZulu-Natal police have confirmed.

The 41-year-old woman was arrested on a murder charge after the man was killed in the early hours of Saturday morning, police spokesperson Major Shooz Magudulela said.

"At about 02:00 the victim and the suspect were in the Shallcross area when they were involved in an argument. It is alleged that the suspect stabbed the 45-year-old [man] to death," he said.

KwaZulu-Natal provincial police Commissioner Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni described the murder as "senseless".

"I appeal to those in relationships to resolve their problems peacefully or seek protection orders," she said.
