KZN woman strangled with scarf
Durban - A man was arrested in connection with the murder of an elderly woman in Margate on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, police in the province said on Monday.
On Sunday, the man, 23, was arrested at Gcilima Ward for the murder of 76-year-old Rita Coetzee on Thursday, said Captain Thulani Zwane.
"Initial investigations indicate that she may have been strangled with a scarf by two suspects who took her DVD player, cellphone and a handbag before fleeing."
Zwane said a second arrest was expected shortly.
The man would appear in the Ramsgate Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
