North West woman murdered

2012-12-04 17:27

Johannesburg - A woman was found raped and murdered in her home in Lebaleng Makwassie, near Wolmaransstad, on Tuesday morning, North West police said.

The woman lived with her blind father, who had heard her shout out a man's name in the middle of the night, Sergeant Philani Nkwalase said.

The father did not realise what was happening and went back to sleep.

On Tuesday morning, a friend came to visit the woman and the blind man told the friend to look into her bedroom as he believed she was still asleep.

"The friend found the deceased in a pool of blood in her bedroom with her throat slit," Nkwalase said.

A knife and two used condoms were found near the body.

The woman's father told police the name he heard her shout. Police found the man.

He had the woman's cellphone in his possession.

"He also pointed out where he hid his clothes with the bloodstains and the suspect was arrested."

He would appear soon in court. The man had been sentenced to a year in prison in September for common robbery, but was later released under correctional supervision, Nkwalase said.
