CAPE TOWN - A 16-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a family murder on a Griekwastad farm on Good Friday.

Northern Cape police said detectives arrested the boy in Bloemfontein on Tuesday.

Farmer Deon Steenkamp, his wife Christelle and their 14-year-old daughter were shot dead on their farm back in April.

The couple's son heard the shots while he was in a storeroom. 

He discovered the bodies before driving to a police station to report the killings.

The police's Cherelle Ehlers said the suspect will appear in court on Friday.
