Alleged Mischke killers apprehended
JOHANNESBURG - A second man accused of killing University of Johannesburg lecturer Carl Mischke has been arrested, Gauteng police said on Sunday.
Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said the 29-year-old man was arrested in Kempton Park on Saturday.
"The victim's vehicle was also recovered in Kempton Park on Friday, whilst it was being stripped by two suspects, and they were arrested for being in possession of a suspected stolen vehicle," he said.
Another 29-year-old man had been arrested on Thursday, also in connection with the murder.
Mischke was stabbed to death at his home. A domestic worker found his body in his bedroom, said Dlamini.
"It is suspected that a sharp object was used to stab him. He was found lying on his bed in a pool of blood. His head was covered with a pillow. No murder weapon was found at the scene," he said.
Dlamini said that all four men arrested would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
"Two will appear for the murder and other two for possession of a stolen vehicle."
He said the motive for the killing was still not known.
