POLOKWANE: Wednesday 22 June 2022- The Police in Thabazimbi have arrested a 55-year-old suspect for allegedly stabbing his wife aged 54 to death in their Plot house at Spitzkop on Wednesday 22 June 2022 between 12:00 and 12:54.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect, who initially attempted to mislead the police by alleging that his wife was killed at the time he was away from home after driving to town, had unexplained bruises and scratches which indicated that he might have committed the murder. The murder weapon was also recovered in the vicinity.

After a thorough probe of the crime scene, the suspect was then arrested. The deceased has been identified as June Catherine Pautz.

The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has deplored yet another incident of Gender Based Violence and has warned community members to desist from these tendencies.

The suspect will appear in Thabazimbi Magistrates' Court soon facing a charge of murder.
