The murder trial of two Limpopo men who were found with a head of a teenage girl will start this Tuesday in the High Court in Polokwane.

Fifty one-year-old Edward Raatji and co-accused, 34-year-old Stanley Mohlake were arrested at a taxi rank in Polokwane two years ago while trying to sell the head to a businessman.

The DNA results confirmed that the head that was found in possession of the two suspects belonged to a teenage girl Nthabiseng Mosomane.

Her headless and burned body was found in Mapela outside Mokopane, a day after the two suspects were arrested.

Raatji and Mohlake have been in police custody since their last appearance where bail was denied.

The trial was postponed five months ago due to the unavailability of Raatji’s lawyer.
