THE court was packed yesterday when Itumeleng Makhalemele-Maseko made her first brief appearance for allegedly murdering her husband.
The 26-year-old lawyer was in Court B of the Witbank Magistrates Court in Emalahleni, Mpumalanga.
She is accused of stabbing her husband, Caswell Maseko (30) to death after an argument in the early hours of Saturday morning.
She was not asked to plead.
Itumeleng apparently fled the scene after the incident, and went to Tshwane where she allegedly considered suicide before being rescued by friends. She handed herself in to the police on Monday.
The young couple was known in Emalahleni for their lavish lifestyle, beautiful cars and big house.
