A woman's body has been found in a shack in Vlakfontein, south of Johannesburg, with the victim's boyfriend being arrested on Sunday.

The discovery was made after a friend of the deceased reported the matter to police after not having seen the woman since June. According to reports, the boyfriend had pointed the police to the ground under his bed after being questioned.

“Upon questioning, he pointed the police to a shallow grave inside the shack. The police and a rescue team searched and a body of a woman was found,” police spokesperson Mavela Masondo said.

The man has been charged with murder.
