Cape Town - Three people will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with the death of a young Cape Town mother.

The Cape Times reported that the trio, aged 20 to 25 years, would appear on charges of murder and possession of stolen property.

Anzunette du Plessis, 33, was killed in her Claremont home on Thursday. Her 2-year-old daughter had been walking in a nearby park with a domestic worker.

A neighbour found the front door and security gate open.

He told the newspaper he suspected Du Plessis had recognised one of her killers and opened the door.

Police spokesperson Andre Traut said that shortly after the killing, the trio had been spotted "under suspicious circumstances" in Racecourse Road, in possession of the items stolen from the house.

He said a fourth person was still on the run.
