Pontsho Mohlankana made a brief appearance in the Vereeniging Regional Court on Monday on a charge of murder.


The man previously believed to be her accomplice has not been charged due to a lack of evidence. 


Spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in Gauteng Phindi Mjonondwane says Mohlanka will be back in court on Wednesday for a formal bail application.
