Johannesburg - A day-mother and a five-month-old baby boy were found strangled in Delmas on Wednesday, Mpumalanga police said.
The mother of the baby repeatedly telephoned the 66-year-old woman’s house and, when there was no answer, went to see if something was wrong, said Colonel Leonard Hlathi.
She arrived to find the doors locked and heard an 18-month-old girl crying inside. She broke a window to get into the house, said Hlathi.
The day-mother's body was found under a carpet in an outside room. The baby's body was found under a bed in the main house.
Both appeared to have been strangled, said Hlathi.
The motive for the killings was not known. - Sapa
