A 38-year-old woman was arrested by police from Elukwatini in connection with the murder of her boyfriend, eight years younger than her on Sunday.

Ms Muhle Charlotte Hlophe allegedly stabbed and inflicted multiple stab wounds on her boyfriend at his place at Nhlazatshe Extension 5.

It is alleged that she left her friends after a drinking spree at a tavern in Extension 1 and went to her boyfriend’s place.

It is alleged that when she got there, she knocked on the door but no one opened for her. She then went to the main house where she borrowed a knife from her boyfriend’siblings to force open the door.
Apparently the victim’s siblings tried to stop her from going to the room and said that the victim was way too drunk to speak to her, but she insisted.

A fight broke out when she found her boyfriend with another woman after breaking in.

She assaulted the woman who managed to flee the scene.

Hlophe briefly appeared before the Eesterhoek Magistrate’s Court on Monday on a charge on murder.
