IN A bizarre incident a 50-year-old man from Mount View in Verulam, north of Durban, was arrested yesterday morning for bludgeoning his 30-year-old sister to death with an axe.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Vincent Mdunge said the man told the police that he killed his sister because he was responding to a voice from God.

He said when the police searched the house they found documents showing that the man was mentally retarded.

He said the man was however arrested and will appear in the Verulam magistrate's court today to face a murder charge.

He will also be sent for mental observation.
