70years old woman killed with an axe in South Africa

A 70-year-old woman was allegedly hacked to death with an axe early on Friday morning by a former employee at her home in Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria South Africa.

"It is believed the man came into the home and he used an axe [to attack the woman], and stole R300, a cellphone and took the car keys," spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said.

"He stopped at the gate, and not being able to get out, abandoned the car at the scene and left on foot."

The attack is believed to have occurred around 05:00."At around 07:00, a neighbour went to the house and discovered the woman. They put the woman in their vehicle and on the way to hospital, the woman passed away in the vehicle."

While the neighbour was driving, they saw the former worker on the side of the road and contacted police.
The man was arrested shortly afterwards, with the cellphone and money recovered.
Dlamini said the man was expected to appear in the Moretele Magistrate's Court on Monday.
