A woman who repeatedly stabbed and murdered a man in Schaerbeek on Friday was issued with an arrest warrant by an examining magistrate during a hearing that took place on Sunday.
The murder took place on Friday night in an apartment on Rue Adolphe Marbotin.
“The prosecution and the investigating judge went to the scene, a suspect was arrested [and] charged with murder by the investigating judge,” spokesperson of the Brussels public prosecutor’s office, Denis Goeman, told RTL.
According to the Brussels public prosecutor, the woman was a friend of the victim. However, the prosecutor added that this information still needs to be verified.
