Durban: Two teenagers have been charged with the murder of a woman whose body was found in the boot of a car in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal police said.

Spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said Mountain Rise SAPS received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle in Hanniville, near new sites, on Friday at 8.20pm. They went to the scene.

“On arrival, they searched the vehicle, opened the boot and found the body of a 48-year-old woman wrapped with blankets.

“The victim had bruises on the body and open wounds on the head, shoulder and chin.”
