A 47-year-old former police officer faces jail time for murder for allegedly stabbing and fatally wounding a woman in North Road in Moffat View, south of Johannesburg, at the weekend.

Moffat View spokesperson Captain Jeff Phora said a 47-year-old woman and Samson Mosiya, a former public order policing officer, allegedly had a confrontation over beer crates on Saturday evening at about 9pm.

Phora said the victim was found with stab wounds and declared dead on the scene by medics. Police have launched a murder investigation.

The former public order policing member appeared before the Johannesburg Magistrates’ Court on a murder charge on Wednesday. His case was postponed for further investigation. Mosiya was appearing for bail application.

He is remanded in custody while police await a new court date, according to Phora.
