Johannesburg - Two cousins accused of repeatedly stabbing four of their relatives, including a 7-month-old baby, before putting three of them into a bathtub filled with boiling water, are expected back in court on Wednesday.

Two sisters, their cousin and her baby were attacked in her Katlehong home, on the East Rand, in December 2015.

One of the sisters, Nthabiseng Letswale, 23, fought off the attackers and ran for help. She survived the attack with stab wounds.

Her sister Lerato Letswale, 18, cousin Lebohang Prisca Movit, 22, and Movit's baby girl, Bokamoso Skhumbuzo Movit, were killed. They were stabbed repeatedly and put into a bathtub filled with boiling water.

The two accused will appear in the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge.

The cousins have pleaded guilty to three counts of murder, attempted murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances.
