A WOMAN has been charged with murder after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death with a shisha pipe needle.
Nicole Maria Ferreira da Costa, 20, is accused of killing her boyfriend Adailton Gomes de Abreu Sousa, 24, following an “immature” row over a “samosa.”
He was found dead at her house in the Aparecida de Goiania municipality of Brazil on September 18 last year.
According to the Police, the young woman used the hookah needle during a trivial argument over a typical Brazilian fast-food pastry dish similar to a samosa.
According to their version of events, the dispute started when the pair had gone out with Mr Sousa’s two sisters earlier in the day.
After it continued at Ms Costa’s house later that evening, the 20-year-old allegedly used a hookah needle – found on a shisha pipe – to stab her boyfriend through his chest.
Adailton’s sisters, aged 13 and 16, were outside the house when the crime took place.
After police were called to the house, investigators originally suspected Adailton had suffered a heart attack before they noticed a wound through his nipple which had pierced his heart.
Chief investigator Eduardo Rodovalho told news site G1: “He was in agony for a short time and then died.”
Ms Costa initially told the police that her boyfriend had attacked her with a broken hookah pipe and that she then stabbed him with the needle in self-defence before seeking help.
However, investigators quickly ruled out the self-defence hypothesis after no injuries were found on the young woman.
Officers also noted that fights between the “immature” couple were commonplace.

Costa was not arrested at the time, as she cooperated fully with the police and appeared genuinely distressed at her boyfriend’s death.
Mr Adailton was a mechanic and leaves behind a two-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. He had been together wit Ms Costa for around two years.
It it is unclear why the argument was such a cause of friction between the pair, but Ms Costa has now been released on bail while she awaits trial.
