A teenager from Pampierstad, in the Northern Cape, appeared in court on Monday for the brutal killing of his parents.
According to police spokesperson Lt-Col Dimakatso Mooi, the teen – who has not yet been named – will appear in the Pampierstad magistrate’s court again on September 7.
However, it was reported that the police the suspect was 17, but this has since been amended.
“The bodies of the couple, aged 67 and 57, were discovered on August 27 in the veld with open cut wounds and marks that suggested that they had been dragged with a vehicle to where they were found,” said Mooi.
