The affordable education loan option
Johannesburg - The case of two people accused of involvement in the murder of a man whose body was found in the boot of his car at Montecasino in Fourways was postponed by the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
The case was postponed to November 6 for further investigation and to allow newly-appointed lawyer Mark van Schalkwyk to acquaint himself with the case. He is representing former stripper Maruschka Robinson.
Robinson and Jean-Pierre Malan, believed to be her boyfriend, were arrested last month after security guards found Dustan Blom's decomposing body in the casino's parking garage. They investigated the car after noticing a bad smell coming from it.
Robinson had allegedly rented a room from Blom, the widowed father of infant twins.
On Wednesday, a clean-shaved Malan stepped into the dock, wearing a brown shirt and tan jersey. He paid hardly any attention to his co-accused, Robinson. The black-haired ex-stripper wore a black top and blue jeans. Both paid little attention to the cameras pointed at them before court began.
During their last appearance, they reserved the right to apply for bail. It was unclear whether they would try to get bail at their next appearance.
Prosecutor Yusuf Baba said the case was expected to be transferred to the high court later.
