JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane has described the murder of a 30-year-old woman as barbaric.

The woman's body was discovered by a passer-by on a dump at the Silver Oaks Secondary School in Eldorado Park yesterday.

She'd been stabbed several times and was partially undressed.

A total of eight people have been taken in for questioning in connection with the crime.

Mokonyane's spokesperson Thebe Mohatle says the premier condemns the attack in the strongest terms.

"It is shocking and we're concerned about the safety of women and children in the province."

Meanwhile, the father of Tracey-Lee Martins, whose killers will be sentenced in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court today, says he is shocked by their arrogance and lack of remorse.

The 28-year-old mother, also from Eldorado Park, was murdered in front of her three-year-old son in April last year.

Her father Andre Balutto says he hopes her killers will be locked up for a long time.

"I couldn't believe that these two youngsters were capable of it because they looked innocent. But when the judge found them guilty, I couldn't believe their arrogance."
