Cape Town - The bodies of an elderly married couple were found in their home in Kleinmond on Monday morning, Western Cape police said.

Superintendent Andre Traut said the bodies of Schalk and Marie van der Westhuizen, both in their seventies, were found in their Kleinmond home at 09:00.

"A neighbour made the discovery after they failed to answer calls. Both victims sustained stab wounds to the face and body," he said.

The residence was ransacked and several household appliances were stolen.

Traut said the murders apparently occurred on Sunday night.

A case of murder and robbery is being investigated.
