According to police, Rozani was trailed by Ngqeme in the township street as she was walking home after taking her eight-year-old child to school.

Police spokesperson Nomsa Sekele said Rozani was allegedly dragged by Ngqeme into his shack where he attacked and butchered her. The accused allegedly did not take kindly to the deceased refusing to get back into the  relationship with him.

Ngqeme was arrested on same day of the murder.

Sekele said Ngqeme was facing charges of murder and domestic violence and that other charges could be added at a later stage.She added that the matter was postponed today because of delayed postmortem results from the state pathologist.

The matter has been postponed to August 31.
