Cape Town - A man arrested for the murder of Susan Loubser, 79, lived in the same street as the pensioner.

The 45-year-old suspect is expected to appear in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

Loubser’s beaten and bloody body was found by two of her children in her Sakabula Street, Ruyterwacht home on May 22.

She had been stabbed in the throat and chest and also sustained a broken jaw in a suspected beating.

The security gate of her home was found ripped from its hinges by a family member after he was alerted that shouts had been heard by neighbours.

It is believed that Loubser’s body had been dragged from the front door to her bedroom as smeared blood could be seen in the passage of her home.

Only a flat screen TV set, bought for her by a relative six weeks ago, and a DVD player were missing from the house.

Provincial police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said a man from Kingfisher Flats, also in Sakabula Street, was arrested on June 11 for the murder.

He appeared in court on June 15 and the case was postponed for further investigation.

“No bail was granted,” Van Wyk confirmed.
