Two juveniles from Plumtree who strangled a 78-year-old granny are reportedly are languishing in remand prison for a crime they allegedly committed over a year ago as their case has been stalling at the courts.

According to The Daily News, at the time of allegedly committing the crime, the uncle, Mxolisi Nkomo, was 20 while the two juveniles, who cannot be named for ethical reasons, were aged 14 and 15.

This case only came to light when the two, who are accused alongside their uncle appeared in court for a routine remand hearing last Friday.

It is in the States case that on the 9th of October, 2019, the trio went to the woman’s homestead in Madlambuzi area with the intention of stealing from her.

When they arrived, the trio reportedly used a knife to force open the locked door.

When they gained entry, one of the accused allegedly grabbed and strangled the old woman.

Police investigating the matter tracked the accused’s footprints from the scene, leading to their arrest.

One of the accused was arrested while dressed in clothes that had been stolen from the elderly woman’s house.

The other accused were allegedly also found in possession of different goods, all stolen from the same homestead, the court was told.
