The 27-year-old man arrested for the murder of his teenage girlfriend is expected to appear in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Elba Japhta, 14, was found dead under the man's bed in his Zwelitsha home on Sunday.

She had reportedly been beaten and stabbed to death.

Police told News24 the girl had been living with the suspect.

According to locals, she had been in a relationship with the man for the past two years.

The murder comes two years after the murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen, who was found raped and disembowelled in February 2013. She later died at the Tygerberg Hospital.
