A 38-year-old woman is expected to appear in the Koster Magistrate's Court on a charge of murder.

She allegedly stabbed her husband at their home on Saturday.

The police say the North West woman was arrested at the Syfersdelt informal settlement on the same day.

The incident allegedly followed an argument between the woman and her 45-year-old husband while they were drinking beer.

"The husband allegedly tried to stab his wife with a fork, but the wife took out a knife and allegedly stabbed her husband on the chest," says police spokesperson Sergeant Kelebogile Moleko.

The man was certified dead by paramedics who found him " in a pool of blood".
