Man kills his pregnant girlfriend and buries her in a shallow grave in his grandparents backyard

A Kariega man proved just how ruthless a man can be when he killed his pregnant girlfriend before disposing her body in the backyard of his grandparents backyard in a crime that shook an entire community.

The 19 year old has already appeared in court. It is believed that Kyle Barnes killed 25 year old Sinthia Williams at the Bauhinia Crescent home. This the home he stays with his grandparents. 

It is believed there was an argument between the two and he killed her by stabbing her before trying to conceal the crime by burying her in his parents backyard. 

Her body was discovered after it had started decomposing producing a strong stench.

The couple had been together for just two years when the incident happened. 

It is alleged that Sinthia was stabbed and her body buried in a shallow grave just metres from the back door.

Wearing blue denim jeans and a black and white jacket, Barnes indicated to the court that he wanted to apply for legal aid.

The attorney said Barnes had instructed her that he wanted to apply for bail.

Prosecutor Grace Baatjies said the state would oppose bail.
