A woman who allegedly stabbed her lover to death following an argument will appear in the Chatsworth Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, 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.
