MASERU – Double murder convict Lehlohonolo Scott who was on Tuesday found guilty of the 2012 ritual murder of his two young neighbours will be sentenced on June 24.

The High Court also convicted Scott of escaping from the Maseru Central Prison in October that year.

He was accused of the murder of Moholobela Seetsa and Kamohelo Mohata which occurred in Koalabata, Berea in January and July 2012, respectively.

His mother ’Malehlohonolo was found guilty of aiding him after he murdered Mohata and the two will be sentenced together.  

Justice Teboho Moiloa, however, acquitted ’Malehlohonolo of Seetsa’s murder after the court could not find enough evidence linking her to the crime.

Handing down the long awaited verdict, Judge Moiloa said among others, Scott volunteered to point out locations where the deceased’s body parts were later found.

He said after his detention, evidence shows that Scott was assisted to escape from prison by men who were dressed in black and had their faces covered with balaclava hats.
