Cape Town - A Cape Town policeman has told the Blue Downs Magistrate's Court how 16-year-old Charmaine Mare was killed and dismembered, it was reported on Friday.

The Cape Argus reported that investigating officer, Daniel Sampson, gave the details during the bail application of Johannes de Jager on Thursday.

Sampson said De Jager, aged 48, allegedly killed Mare on January 11 after a fight at the Windsor Park home she was staying at for the holidays.

De Jager had been living at the house with his girlfriend.

Mare, from Mpumalanga, was a friend of the girlfriend's daughter.

"The accused told me that he and Charmaine argued in the bathroom. She fell. He grabbed her by the neck, dragged her out of the bathroom into the passage, into the braai room and into the drain. It [the drain] was about one metre deep," Sampson reportedly said.

De Jager allegedly shoved her into the drain. Later, he allegedly tried to remove the body but because it was stiff he cut off her arms and legs to get her out.

Her torso was dumped and set alight in a field. Her arms were found close to his bakkie at the garage of the house and her legs on the N2 near Firgrove.
