23-Year-Old Stabs Boyfriend to Death

AN OKOMBAHE man was stabbed to death by his 23-year-old girlfriend, police said yesterday.

Police spokesperson Edwin Kanguatjivi said Sylvia Veldskoen stabbed Joseph Mokasi (32) in the left side of his stomach after an argument, and he later succumbed to his injuries at the Okombahe clinic.

“They were drinking when a fight broke out between them. We understand people tried to stop the fight but they continued fighting until they got home.

“That is when Veldskoen stabbed him,” Kanguatjivi said. Veldskoen appeared in Omaruru Magistrate’s Court before magistrate Masule Kwizi yesterday where she pleaded guilty.

Kwizi denied her bail, after aising her to seek legal assistance. The case was postponed to 10 June 2014.
