Reports confirm that the two were in a sour relationship.

The late victim, Nengovhela had opened a case of domestic violence against the suspect and was arrested.

A 38-year-old man was out on bail and was to appear again in Thohoyandou magistrate court next week.

The 33-year-old woman went to court on Friday 27 January 2023 and withdrew the case.

The suspect called the police this morning and indicated he could not locate his wife but was surprised to find her dead in the ditch in their yard.

Preliminary probe conducted by the Police at the scene led to the arrest of the suspect on a charge of murder,” said Limpopo Police Spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo.

The woman obviously trusted her husband that he would not again physically torment her, but she is now no more. We urge community members having domestic challenges to seek help and desist from resorting to violence,” said Lieutenant General Hadebe.
