The incident unfolded at the woman’s residence around 01:00, while most people were still asleep.

The alleged perpetrator, 27-year-old Theo Sono from Ngwatsau in Ngwaketse District, was arrested on the same day and appeared before Molepolole Magistrates’ Court this Monday, facing a charge of murdering Dimakatso Jane.

During the court proceedings, prosecutor Inspector Thema Marumolo requested that Sono be remanded in custody, citing the need for a post-mortem examination.
