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 has confessed to using the hookah needle during a trivial argument over a typical Brazilian fast-food dish last year.
According to their version of events, the dispute started when the pair had gone out with Mr Sousa’s two sisters.
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.”
During questioning, 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 ruled out the self-defence hypothesis after no injuries were found on the young woman.
They 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.
