The murder case of Flavio Hlabangwane, who was arrested after female body parts were allegedly found in his fridge, has been postponed to January next year.

The Protea Magistrate’s Court in Soweto ruled that the accused undergo psychiatric evaluation.

Hlabangwane is thought to have made two suicide attempts since his arrest last month.

He will be remanded at the hospital wing of Johannesburg Prison for observation.

According to the police report, the girlfriend discovered the body parts after he had left to go shopping.

Police have linked the discovery of a head in a shallow grave next to Glen Ridge on Westonaria road to that of a woman whose remains were found in the fridge.

The identity of the victim is still being investigated.
