Cape Town - Three people will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with the death of a young Cape Town mother.

The Cape Times reported that the trio, aged 20 to 25 years, would appear on charges of murder and possession of stolen property.

Anzunette du Plessis, 33, was killed in her Claremont home on Thursday. Her 2-year-old daughter had been walking in a nearby park with a domestic worker.

A neighbour found the front door and security gate open.

He told the newspaper he suspected Du Plessis had recognised one of her killers and opened the door.

Police spokesperson Andre Traut said that shortly after the killing, the trio had been spotted "under suspicious circumstances" in Racecourse Road, in possession of the items stolen from the house.

He said a fourth person was still on the run.

    Would it not be better to have a criminal versus citizen boxing match, but a fight to the death. Allow the criminal to accept the challenge and if he does, televise the event, so that other prospective criminals can see exactly what a pissed off citizen like myself would do to a worthless savage.

    And what awaits these bast@$ds? A roof over their heads, food, bed, companions, TV, library, possibly a workshop to learn some skills. When are we going to learn?

      ...and fully paid education through UNISA too!

    Question: How do we go about having the death penalty fall on listening ears?

    Perhaps the domestic left the security gate and door open when she took the two year old for a walk

    This is how their asses will look like after their sentences, before sentence (_._), after sentence (_0_). Bloody asses

    So fire all your garden boys and maids, secure your home and never open your door to anyone you dont know or if you know them still dont open the door if you are home alone. They must be given the death sentence or better still Street justice would serve here.

    I'm so shocked at what happend! My thoughts go out to her family and friends. I've been living in Australia for the past 5 years and worry about my family and friends living in Cape Town and SA. A young woman got raped and murdered in Melbourne last month and there was a protest of over 10000 people condemning the murder and crime against woman and massive amounts of letters and FB page in support. I just feel that it became a way of life in SA and I'm very angry with the government in letting crime get so out of hand. I visit Cape Town often and still think its one of the most beautiful city and country in the world but I love sleeping with my windows and doors open in oz and never feel scared for myself and my little girls. I'm grateful to the lifestyle Australia is giving me. I'm truly sorry for the lost of such a beautiful life.
