A man who is serving time for a previous murder has appeared in court for allegedly killing a female official at Leeuwkop Correctional Centre in Johannesburg.

Nigel Marais, 30, appeared at the Alexandra magistrate’s court this week in connection with the murder of Eunice Moloko, 50, a correctional officer.

“The case emanates from the discovery of Eunice Moloko's lifeless body [Tuesday last week] inside the female toilets at her place of employment,” said National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane.

Marais was sentenced for a count of murder and another of attempted murder in November 2015 for an incident that happened in KwaZulu-Natal in 2014.

He is serving 18 years' imprisonment at the Leeuwkop correctional facility.

His case was postponed to Wednesday next week for further investigation.
