Khotso Kobeli and his younger brother Pakiso made their first appearance in the same court last week where they were charged with murder.
They were remanded in custody.
It is alleged that on November 2 at around 9m, Khotso, 33, and Pakiso 26, attacked the 32-year-old woman who had boarded a 4+1 cab from Thaba Tseka town to her home village of Ha Sepiriti.
She was alone in the vehicle with the driver.
It is alleged that the two brothers from the same village ambushed the taxi before it reached its destination.
It is further alleged that Khotso had previously been in a steady relationship with the deceased woman and promised to marry her before marrying another woman instead.
The scorned woman is alleged to have attacked Khotso’s home in vengeance and burnt down his house.
