Nino Mbatha, 33, is said to have handed in part of a human leg and a hand to police at the station. This development led to an investigation that uncovered more remains in a nearby house.
Officers were then led to a woman’s mutilated body under some rocks in Estcourt, South Africa.
Mbatha, Lungisani Magubane, 31, and Khayelihle Lamula, 33, have been charged with the murder of 24-year-old mum Zanele Hlatshwayo.
Mbatha, who is also said to be a traditional healer, has also been charged with “handling human tissue”.
Prosecutors say Magubane and Lamula went to Mbatha for a good luck charm and he told them the ancestors insisted that blood needed to be spilled.
Lamula then found Zanele drunk and she agreed to get into his car, unaware that he planned to use her for rituals. The Pietermaritzburg High Court heard that Lamula then picked up Magubane and Mbatha and drove them all to a secluded spot where Mbatha killed the mum and ate parts of her body.
All three suspects have pleaded not guilty to all counts.
The woman’s body was found in August 2017 after one of the suspects reportedly led community members and police to where it was hidden
