AN elderly woman from Athlone Park in Amanzimtoti, Edda Jumaima Botha (75), was apparently beaten to death with the pick handle she kept next to her bed to protect herself.

A neighbour, Murray McGoldrick, said he was awakened by his barking dogs and Bram’s scream: “Somebody please help. My wife is bleeding to death”.
