The bloody remains of the woman were discovered in the yard, where she had been hiding.
A 28-year-old lady from Thembalihle near Vrede was taken into custody by police in the Free State after the body of a male cohabitant who she lived with was discovered stabbed at their shack.
According to the police spokesperson Warrant Officer Mmako Mophiring, one of the neighbors went to the police station on Saturday to inform officers about a body that was found in a shack next to theirs. The shack was located next to their property.
When the police arrived at the scene of the crime, they discovered the woman inside the yard. Her clothing was visibly bloodstained, and she had been crying.
"Blood was detected on a pair of scissors that were discovered in a shallow hole that had been excavated in the yard. The clothes of the suspect as well as those of the victim were taken into custody. The deceased person is well known by the community, but his family has not yet been able to positively identify him.
The body of the deceased was discovered lying outside the shack close to the entrance. He suffered a stab wound to the top portion of his torso.
His name was being suppressed until his relatives could positively identify him in a formal capacity.
On Monday, the woman, who is now 28 years old, is scheduled to make an appearance before the Vrede Magistrate's Court on the charge of murder.
