Two suspects were arrested on Sunday in connection with the murder of a 25-year-old woman in Ngcobo, Eastern Cape.

The two men, aged 35 and 45 years old, were arrested and found in possession of fire arms and live ammunition.

"It is alleged that the deceased was driving her vehicle. On her way, she got stuck and two men came pretending to help the lady," said police spokesperson Captain Namhla Mdleleni.

"They withdrew a 9mm pistol and shot her several times."

The woman was transported to All Saints Hospital where she later died.

Both suspects will appear before the Ngcobo Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
