Johannesburg - A man and a woman were stabbed to death in Beyele village near Ngcobo, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

The man, 50, and woman, 46, were killed in their bed on Sunday night, Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said.
They had stab wounds all over their bodies.

"Seemingly they were stabbed with a spear because we found a handle on the scene."

A murder case was opened and police were investigating.

In another incident, a 25-year-old man allegedly raped a young woman in the Mthintloni area, Ngcobo, on Sunday, Fatyela said.

He told an 18-year-old woman that her relative was looking for her.

He offered to accompany her, but then took her to his house where he allegedly raped her.

The man would appear in the Ngcobo Magistrate's Court soon.
