Letlhakeng police have arrested a man who reportedly strangled to death his girlfriend last Thursday at Serinane village.

Station commander Superintendent Amos Kekgathetse confirmed that the suspect, aged between 30 and 40, was arrested just a day after the incident on Friday.

The 32-year-old deceased was allegedly found lying motionless on the blankets by her mother on Friday morning after she tried to wake her up and failed to get any response.

The duo, the deceased and her boyfriend had reportedly spent the night by the fireplace.
