Johannesburg - Two men appeared in the Delmas Magistrate's Court on Thursday in connection with the murder of a day mother and a 5-month-old baby boy.

Mpumalanga police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said Enock Mbele, 44, and Lazarus Mabhena, 54, were denied bail.

"The matter was postponed to 7 June for further investigation."

He said the men were arrested on Tuesday and were found in possession of jewellery and a cellphone which police believe belonged to the victim.

The woman, Margrietha de Goede, 66, and baby were found strangled in her home last Wednesday.

The day mother's body was found under a carpet in an outside room.

The baby was found under a bed in the main house.

    please please tell us how can any man murder an innocent 5 month old baby. This is not just plain murder, there is a force out there that is working in unison to get rid of certain people. They are doing this underhanded the cowards.

    One thing is for sure, they will everyday in prison be reminded of the murder. Its prison unwritten law, if you commit a crime that includes violence towards a child, you will be raped by the hour every hour. The death penalty will be a relief for them. So i say, leave them, they will either hang themselves or die of aids.
