On Monday, a 31-year-old man from Senegal appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrates’ court. He is the prime suspect in his girlfriend’s murder case.
According to Gauteng police spokesperson Cpt Jethro Mtshali, a decapitated body was discovered on Friday in the suspect’s flat that he shared with a 29-year-old girlfriend. Her head was later found in the fridge in the same flat.
“She was allegedly beheaded by her boyfriend,” Mtshali confirmed.
The man was arrested the same day at work. He reportedly speaks French but understands English. The name is kept secret as the investigation goes on.
A formal bail application is scheduled for May 7.
