Johannesburg - A man is expected to appear in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for allegedly killing his 83-year-old grandmother with an axe, Limpopo police said.

“The 29-year-old grandson accused his grandmother, Miluva Chauke, of bewitching his mother,” said spokeswoman Colonel Ronel Otto.

“He took an axe and chopped her on the neck on Saturday.”

The man's 52-year-old mother died last week after a short illness.

Her funeral took place at Mshiyani village on Saturday, Otto said.

“After the funeral, the man accused the grandmother of being responsible for his mother's death by bewitching her, he then attacked her,” she said.

The woman collapsed and died on the scene.

The man fled from the house but was arrested shortly after the incident. - Sapa
