Funeral parlour owner arrested for murder
Argument about a gearbox ends with mechanic's death
A funeral parlour owner has been arrested in Butterworth for murder, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday.
The 54-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday shortly after he shot dead a mechanic, Captain Jackson Manatha said.
The two had apparently been fighting over the ownership of a gearbox when the parlour owner withdrew a firearm and shot the 35-year-old mechanic twice in his upper body.
