A man accused of killing his 56-year-old girlfriend, Busisiwe Mthethwa, and then stuffing her body in a freezer in their Samora Machel home in Philippi, Cape Town, will remain behind bars for now.
Brian Miripiri, 45, made a brief second appearance in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday morning on a charge of murder following the gruesome discovery more than a week ago.
Dressed in a long striped T-shirt, grey pants and brown shoes, Miripiri made no eye contact with people in the public gallery where some Samora Machel Community Policing Forum (CPF) members were seated.
