Murder: Man and buries girlfriend in the yard

A man aged 21 will appear before the Mhala Magistrate Court on 24 June 2019 for murder. The suspect was arrested on Saturday, 22 June 2019 after his family handed him over to the police for reportedly confessing that he killed his 22 year old girlfriend and buried her in the yard, approximately three months ago.

The incident occurred in Agincourt Village outside Thulamahashe, near Bushbuckridge.

Upon investigation, the suspect confessed that he assaulted her with a blunt object on her head after they had had an argument. He then put her in a suitcase and buried her in the yard. Relevant stakeholders were summoned to the scene where a decomposed body was found.

The suspect was remanded in custody pending bail application and will reappear at the same court on 25 June 2019.
