Bloemfontein - A man has been arrested after being found in possession of the car keys and driver's licence of a woman found dead in Allanridge, Free State police said on Friday.

The 82-year-old woman was found dead in her bath on Thursday. Her arms were bound with a tie, said Captain Stephen Thakeng.

“She was already dead when the police found her inside her bath full of water. Blood could also be seen in her mouth,” he said.

The 21-year-old man was arrested later that day and would appear in the Odendaalsrus Magistrate's Court on December 9.
