A court in South Africa has convicted a man of murdering his ex-girlfriend by stabbing her and then trying to conceal his crime by burning her body.
Sandile Mantsoe, 28, was arrested after the charred remains of Karabo Mokoena, 23, was found in a shallow grave near a suburb of the main city, Johannesburg, in April 2017.
Judge Peet Johnson said Mantsoe was an unreliable witness who had fabricated evidence during his trial.
Ms Mokoena’s murder sparked outrage in South Africa, where femicides are around five times higher than the global average.
It also led to online accounts of physical and sexual abuse by men under the hashtag “MenAreTrash”.
