JOHANNESBURG - Results from the Sterkfontein Psychiatric Hospital in Krugersdorp are expected to be presented in the Protea Magistrates Court today, where two teenage boys who are accused of killing two girls in an apparent satanic ritual will appear.

The boys, both aged 16, were assessed at the facility to determine whether they are fit to stand trial.

They were arrested at their school earlier this year, one day after the bodies of 15-year-old Thandeka Moganetsi and 16-year-old Chwayita Rathazayo were discovered in a field in Dobsonville, Soweto.

Razor blades and burnt black candles were found near the crime scene.

The police's spokesman warrant officer Kay Makhubela says, " The matter was remanded for the second accused to be taken to Sterkfontein. Today they'll be getting the results."
