A Mpumalanga radiographer yesterday appeared briefly in the Acornhoek magistrate's court in connection with the death of his wife.
Tshepo Mokoena was not asked to plead to a charge of murder and the matter was postponed to September 2 for further police investigations. His bail of R10000 was extended.
Sowetan learns that the investigations might include yet another murder committed in Soshanguve, Pretoria , between 1997 and 2000.
The bruised and naked body of Mokoena's wife, Debra Silinda, 30, of Thulamahashe, was found in bushes between Marite and Bushbuckridge on January 15 last year.
Silinda was a nurse at Nelspruit Medi-Clinic.
Political groups, including the ANC Women's League and the business community, protested outside the court against the killing of women in the province in general and Silinda's death in particular.
Mokoena had just paid ilobolo for his wife when she was murdered.
