The body of Christine, 57, was found in the Lotheni River in Nzinga, Impendle, later that same day. Three days later, Roger's body was found a few kilometres downstream from where his wife’s body had been found.
One of the suspects, Thulani Moses Mthembu, 43, who was arrested for the murders, appeared at the Howick Magistrate’s Court on March 13 and was remanded into custody until March 22 for bail application.
