A 24-year-old man appeared in court for the murder of his neighbour in Bellville, Cape Town, on Monday. 

Lynette Volschenk was found dead in her apartment on Thursday. 

According to Netwerk24, neighbours heard noises coming from Volschenk's apartment on Wednesday evening. Concerned neighbours then went to investigate the next morning, only to find a suspect with blue gloves inside the apartment.

According to Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, the woman's body parts were found in a black bag inside her apartment.

Kyle Ruiters was arrested a day after Volschenk's body was found. He is believed to also be a resident in the same apartment block. 

Ruiters appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court. The case was then postponed until September 2 and Ruiters will remain in police custody until his next court appearance.
