A Zimbabwean man has been arrested for the murder of an elderly couple in Morningside last year, Johannesburg police said on Friday.

Captain Kym Cloete said the 27-year-old man was arrested in Diepsloot on Thursday.

On September 7, a man found his parents' bodies in their Morningside home after they missed a lunch appointment.

Cloete said the house had been ransacked, and various household items, including cellphones, speakers and a bakkie were missing.

The police recovered some of the stolen property when they made the arrest, she said.

"The suspect will be appearing at the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday March, 18, on two charges of murder and house robbery," said Cloete.

"One suspect is still wanted with regards to this case," she said.
