A Pretoria woman allegedly poisoned her boyfriend in their own apartment and then asked for help to get rid of his body.
Angeline Seanego, 22, appeared briefly on Monday on a charge of murder in the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court. She was arrested on Thursday when her boyfriend’s family arrived home and began searching for him.
She is suspected of poisoning Dennis Kyazze, 38, her boyfriend.
“There is a witness who claims she was asked by the accused to help with the body. The accused allegedly confessed to the same witness that she had poisoned the deceased, ”Adv. Prosecutor Andrew Mphaga.
He indicated that the state would oppose bail, on which Kyazze’s family began clapping hard in the public gallery.
Seanego stared in front of her. On a question from the court, she first indicated that she wanted to take care of her own defense, before applying for legal aid.
Capt. Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makubele says Kyazze’s family found his body under a bed in the flat that the two shared.
“She couldn’t explain how her boyfriend died or how his body ended up under the bed,” Makubele said in a statement.
According to the statement, there were also injuries to Kyazze’s torso. Laboratory tests will determine if he is poisoned, and with whom.
