Cape Town - The case of three men accused of killing a young Cape Town mother was postponed by the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Moegamat Armien Salie, 31, Warren van Rooyen, 28, and Dudley Boesak, 32, would return next Tuesday for their formal bail application, Western Cape NPA spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said.

They would be held at Pollsmoor prison until then.

The men stand accused of stabbing Anzunette du Plessis, 33, to death in her Claremont home at the start of the month.

The trio were arrested after police spotted them in possession of items stolen from the house. - Sapa
