Girlfriend arrested for CT cop murder
His woman is the second suspect to be taken into custody in connection with the crime.
CAPE TOWN - The girlfriend of an off-duty police officer gunned down in Mitchells Plain at the weekend was arrested in connection with his murder.
The constable was shot and killed in Tafelsig on Sunday morning after an argument with an acquaintance.
His girlfriend is the second suspect to be taken into custody in connection with the crime.
The police's Andre Traut said, "On Monday afternoon, a 21-year-old man was arrested for the murder. Shortly thereafter, the victim's 23-year-old girlfriend was placed under arrest. They are due in court once they have been charged."
The victim is the second South African Police Service (SAPS) member to have been killed in the Western Cape over the past week.
On Tuesday, a 30-year-old officer was shot dead in Lwandle while on his way home.
Two men were later arrested in connection with his murder.
Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Police on Friday described police killings as a direct attack on the state.
