Police have arrested a 17-year-old boy in connection with the murder of a teen girl who was shot dead while sleeping in her friend’s bed.
The teenager appeared in court on Friday for the murder of 18-year-old Chimicka Cornberg, who was killed at her friend’s house in Ocean View.
Police arrested the boy last week after taking in for questioning everyone who was in the Carnation Street house last Saturday night.
According to Chimicka’s friend’s mother, all the doors were locked, while only a window, without burglar bars, was left open.
She said her 15-year-old daughter’s boyfriend also slept over.
The family claims no one heard gunshots during the night.
The arrested teen, who cannot be identified as he is a minor, appeared at the Simon’s Town Magistrates’ Court on Friday for a preliminary inquiry.
Police spokesperson, Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, confirms the arrest: “A 17-year-old male was to appear in the Simon’s Town Magistrates’ court on July 7 and is facing a charge of murder of an 18-year-old female.”
