Johannesburg - Three men accused of murder were arrested in Dobsonville on Wednesday, Soweto police said.

The men were taken in for questioning in connection with a missing man and were arrested after confessing to killing him, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

“The men took the police to Doornkop cemetery to show them a shallow grave where they buried the man.”

The 36-year-old man was reported missing from Extension two on August 18.

The accused, aged between 23 and 28, would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon.
