“He left it but immediately went back for it and that is when the fight ensued. The deceased was said to have come out of the house attacking the suspect, who then took a stone and hit him on the head twice,” said Maphephu, adding the suspect claims that when Nkhutswe fell, he left not thinking his friend could be dead.
