JOHANNESBURG – Two suspects charged with killing three of their cousins will appear in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court today.

The pair allegedly beat, stabbed and drowned two sisters and a seven-month-old baby in their Katlehong home earlier last month.

Another family member was also stabbed numerous times, but survived.

The two suspects will appear in court for a second time today.

They're expected to make formal bail application.

Mother of the sisters Sthembile Letsoalo, said the pair should not be granted bail because she fears they will also try to kill her.

Letsoalo said she still doesn’t know the motive for the attacks as she loved and cared for her nephews, but said she needs to know why they committed the murders.
