Satanic murder case to resume today
The suspects are being assessed to determine whether they are fit to stand trial.
JOHANNESBURG - The case against two teenage boys arrested for the murder of two girls in an apparent satanic ritual in Soweto is expected to resume in the Protea Magistrates Court this morning.
The boys - both aged sixteen - were arrested at their school a day after the bodies of the teenage girls were discovered in a veld in Dobsonville.
Police say the boys are being assessed by social workers to determine whether they are fit to stand trial.
They appeared briefly in the children's court last Friday, with their hands and feet in chains, and hid their faces under their jackets as they were escorted in and out of court.
15-year-old Thandeka Moganetsi and 16-year-old Cwayita Rathazwayo were found dead in a field in Dobsonville last month.
They had cuts on their hands and necks.
The police's occult unit is investigating after razor blades and burnt black candles were found near the scene. Pictures in this story are from EWN.
