She drove a police car into the back of her boyfriend's vehicle. He lost control of his car and it crashed into a wall in Vosman Street, Witbank.
She then walked up to the man and allegedly shot him twice in the chest.
Khoabane said she took him to the Cosmos Hospital, but he was declared dead on arrival.

She could also be indicted for attempted murder of the other woman, who had not yet laid a charge.
