A 27-YEAR-OLD man handed himself in to police after his 25-year-old girlfriend’s body was found in a veld in Shayamoya Township on September 10.

The body was found by community members and had stab wounds to the chest.

SAPS spokesman Captain Dumisani Ncongo said the man was charged with murder.
“The man appeared in court on September 12 and the case was remanded for a formal bail application and for further investigation,” said Ncongo.
He has been in custody since then and appeared in the Kokstad Magistrate’s Court yesterday, but the outcome was unavailable at the time of going to press.
