Twenty-year-old Sinethemba Nelani appeared before the Uitenhage Magistrate court on Monday for murder and robbery charges.

He is accused of murdering 79-year-old Romance Thompson. She was murdered at her farm, situated approximately 6 kilometres from Uitenhage, on 17 June 2016. As a result of excellent crime scene management by the Local Criminal Record Centre and the Hawks, clues which ultimately led to the arrest of the suspect were found.

The youth, who was allegedly known by the deceased, was arrested in Uitenhage.

He will appear again before the same court on 19 July 2016 for formal bail application.
