Comment on this story

Johannesburg - A woman, who was arrested when the bodies of two babies were found in a chest freezer in KwaMashu, will appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The bodies of a four-month-old baby and a newborn were found amongst chicken pieces and meat on January 26, after police received a tip-off from local residents.

The woman had allegedly been running an illegal funeral home called Mabinda Funeral Services.

She had been declared insolvent, and her assets liquidated. Despite this, she allegedly continued running the business.

The bodies were recovered when police conducted an in-loco inspection.

The woman was arrested and charged with contravening the Human Tissue Act. - Sapa
