A 15-year-old girl is expected to appear in the Randfontein Magistrate’s Court today for alleged murder.

She was reportedly accused of stabbing a 17-year-old girl when they started fighting while walking on Friday, the Star reported.

Both girls were pupils at Lukhanyo Secondary School, in Mohlakeng, near Randfontein.

Captain Appel Ernst told the newspaper the 17-year-old was taken to hospital.

“The victim died due to her injuries, and the suspect was arrested the same evening,” she said.

The Grade Nine pupil appeared in the Randfontein Magistrate’s Court yesterday and was denied bail.

“The case was postponed to Tuesday. A report from a social worker was ordered for further court proceeding. The suspect is in custody.”

Gauteng education spokesman Charles Phahlane told The Star the girl had been suspended from the school.
