Three people have been arrested for the murder of an 81-year-old man in King William's Town, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

The three, aged 18, 26 and 30, were taken into custody on Thursday and would appear in the King William's Town magistrate's court on Monday, said Superintendent Mtati Tana.

Benjamin Woyclen was found fatally stabbed 14 times outside his home on Wednesday.

"He had gone outside to throw something in the dustbin and when he did not return his wife went out to investigate and found him lying dead next to the fence," he said. - Sapa
