[GRAPHIC CONTENT] The Johannesburg High Court sitting in Palm Ridge has heard of alleged abuse Tshepang Pitse suffered at the hands of Flavio Hlabangwane.
The 28-year-old is standing trial for murder after the State rejected his guilty plea.
Hlabangwane was arrested in November 2021 after body parts of her cousin and lover Pitse were found in his refrigerator at Protea Glen in Soweto.
Tshegohaco Moagi was at court and filed this report.
