“Edith grabbed a knife and repeatedly stabbed the boyfriend on the chest, she then walked out of the house and disappeared, “she said.
The husband was later taken to hospital where he died.
During the hearing in court, she was given 12 years on two counts or pay a fine of 350,000 Rands which she failed to sort.
