A man who woke up next to his dead girlfriend in Shakawe last week has, together with his love rival, been charged with murder.
The two men aged 56 and 33 were arraigned before court for the murder of the 43-year old woman who had allegedly broken up with the younger man.
According to the police, the deceased was found with a roll-on deodorant bottle in her private parts.
It is alleged that on the fateful night, the jilted younger suspect had stormed the victim’s house while she was asleep with the boyfriend, but they managed to restrain and chase him away with the help of family members.
Superintendent Goitsemodimo Molapisi confirmed that the incident happened at Gani settlement near Shakawe. “The incident was reported on Tuesday and the roll-on bottle that was inside the deceased’s private parts was found by her family members while they were getting the body ready for the mortuary,” he said.
Supt. Molapisi says they are still awaiting a postmortem report in order to establish the cause of death. “The information we have at the moment is that when the 56-year-old boyfriend woke up in the morning, he found his girlfriend lying lifelessly and he immediately summoned family members before the matter was reported to the police,” Molapisi said and added that investigations were still at an early stage.
