The wife of slain South African artist Walter Meyer will appear in the Upington Magistrate’s Court for a formal bail application on Friday.

29-year-old Sophia Meyer was arrested last week after her 52-year-old husband was stabbed to death, allegedly following a quarrel.

The paintings of the acclaimed landscape artist have been exhibited in galleries across the globe for the past three decades.

Northern Cape police spokesperson Dimakatso Mooi says, “The suspect was arrest on the day of the incident after she allegedly stabbed her husband to death. She appeared yesterday (Wednesday) at Upington Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder and the case was remanded in custody and she will on the 29th of December make a formal bail application.”
