CAPE TOWN - The bodies of two women have been found in shallow graves in the Eastern Cape in less than a week.

The man has since been arrested, along with another suspect.

The police's Priscilla Naidu: "After intense investigation, detectives, with the assistance of the K-9 search and rescue unit, found the body of the missing woman, Vicky Terblanche, buried in a shallow grave in an open field in green bushes. A post-mortem will be done to determine the cause of death."

Just last week, the body of 16-year-old Cynthia Williams was found buried in the back yard of her boyfriend's house in the Kariega area.

Police said that the teenager was pregnant.

Her 19-year-old boyfriend was apprehended.
