Limpopo farm murder accused in court

Johannesburg - Three men accused of killing a 79-year-old pensioner on a farm appeared in the Lephalale Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Limpopo police said.

The matter was postponed to 30 September for further investigations, said Colonel Ronel Otto.

The men were arrested after Koos Jonker was killed.

Jonker was found dead on his bathroom floor on 3 August, in the quarters he rented on the farm.

"His hands and feet were tied up and he had severe assault wounds on his head," Otto said at the time.
