Man denied bail in murder case
A man accused of murdering his partner appeared briefly before the Knysna Magistrate’s Court on 3 July.
Thokozile Vongwe (51) is charged with the murder of Elsie Mowers at a house in Uniondale Road in Nekkies on 24 June at about 19:00.
Vongwe applied for bail, but this was denied and he remains in custody.
Knysna police spokesperson Sergeant Chris Spies said, “It is alleged that the suspect and the victim had an argument. He stabbed the victim with a sharp object. She sustained multiple injuries and died on the scene.”
This matter was postponed to 24 July for further investigation.
