MASERU – Ritual murder suspects Lehlohonolo Scott and his mother ’Malehlohonolo will know their fate on Wednesday when the High Court makes a ruling in their case.

The Scotts are charged with the murder of two Koalabata boys, Moholobela Seetsa and Kamohelo Mohata who were allegedly killed in 2012 for ritual purposes.

But both accused have proclaimed their innocence with their lawyer Advocate Thulo Hoeane maintaining that the Crown only has circumstantial evidence that cannot convict his clients.

Advocates Gareth Leppan and Thapelo Mokuku for the Crown contend that the Scotts are responsible for the killings, adding there is adequate evidence linking them to the crime.

Lehlohonolo is also accused of escaping from the Maseru Central Prison in October 2012.

The trial continues before Justice Teboho Moiloa.
