JOHANNESBURG – A 19-year-old student, Obed Leshoro, appeared in the Welkom Magistrate’s Court on Thursday in connection with the murder of a 21-year old woman.

The woman’s burnt body was found in an open field in Dagbreek, Welkom. Her breasts had been cut off and a knife was stuck in her neck.

Free State police spokesperson Captain Stephen Thakeng said Naledi Arcelia Lethoba, from Bothaville, was a student at Goldfields TVET College. 

He said her body was identified by her parents on Friday last week.

The accused is a fellow student who was arrested at the college on Tuesday.

The case against Leshoro was postponed to June 14 for a formal bail application.
