OFM News previously reported that the 15-year-old suspect was arrested for the alleged murder last week, after Zastron police were summoned to the school after reports of a stabbing. On arrival, members discovered that the suspect was chased and arrested by community members, who witnessed the unfortunate incident.

“The learner will be kept at One-stop centre in Bloemfontein until his next court appearance.”
