handcuffsIOL News reports that a security guard, identified by police as Wessel Badenhorst, 55, has been arrested by police in Mpumalanga on charges of murder and attempted murder.

Police reports indicate that on Friday, at around 11pm, police and emergency medical services personnel were called to a farm situated in Delmas. “Upon arrival, they found a female with gunshot wound(s) as well as a security guard holding a firearm. There were two vehicles at the scene. One of the car’s windscreen was riddled with bullet holes,” said Colonel Donald Mdhluli.
