South African Prison Warder Beats Wife To Death

A South African prison warder has beaten his wife to death using a baton, a police spokesperson has confirmed.

The homicide happened on Thursday at their home in Aliwal North, Eastern Cape.

Police spokesperson Moitheri Bojabotseha said police and a hostage negotiator forced their way into the house on Cathcart Street where they found the woman dead on the floor in their bedroom.

Two batons were also found behind her body.

Bojabotseha said preliminary investigations indicate that an argument between the couple led to a physical attack.

The warder who remained inside the house with the body of his wife, has been arrested and will appear at the Aliwal North Magistrate Court on Monday.

Last year a South African warder was arrested for allegedly masterminding the rape and “contract murder” of female colleagues by an inmate.

The report details an incident at the Free State facility on March 29 where a female warder, identified as Nomsa Stuurman, was killed by an inmate when he took her hostage and stabbed her to death with scissors.

The inmate thereafter took another woman hostage for several hours and raped her.
