A 50-year-old man accused of beating his girlfriend to death has been arrested in East London, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

The man was caught on Sunday in Nompumelelo informal settlement, said Captain Stephen Marais.

Apparently the couple were involved in domestic violence and community members informed the police.

The woman, believed to be in her 40s, was declared dead on the scene.

The man would appear in the East London Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, said Marais.
