A 34-year-old woman has been sentenced to 12 years behind bars for the murder of her 38-year-old boyfriend. 

Magrieta De Wet appeared in the Sutherland Regional Court.

In December 2017, Magrieta fatally stabbed her boyfriend, Jaco Booysen in the stomach.

The incident occurred when they argued about the paternity of their three-month-old baby. 

Jaco died two days later and the autopsy revealed that his death was caused by the stab wound on his stomach.

Magrieta was arrested and charged with murder.  She was later released on bail.
