Dorah Zwidofhelangani Manwadu, the wife of murdered state lawyer James Manwadu, was arrested in connection with his killing and appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
The attorney, attached to Legal Aid South Africa in Thohoyandou, was shot and killed on 16 January last year.
Manwadu was getting out of his vehicle to open the gate at home when he was approached by gunmen and shot dead.
Police said Manwadu's wife was arrested on Tuesday night after she was positively linked to her husband's murder.
She remains in police custody until 3 February for legal representation.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said Manwadu's wife was the fourth person to appear in court for his murder.
Tshianeo Munyai, Pfunzo Lidzebe, and Nemakhavhani Ndalamo appeared in the same court last year.
The three will appear in court again on 20 February.
Malabi-Dzhangi said Munyai and Lidzebe were also linked to the murder case of Collins Chabane Mayor Moses Maluleke.
They will appear in Limpopo Polokwane High Court for the start of their trial in the Chabane case.
"Munyai is linked to several other cases committed between 2020 and 2022 for robberies with aggravating circumstances while Nemakhavhani is also linked to several cases of housebreaking, robberies, and theft committed around Thohoyandou," said Malabi-Dzangi.
