North West - The trial of three men accused of murdering former heavyweight boxer Corrie Sanders was postponed in the Brits Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, police said.

Captain Amanda Funani said the three would remain in custody until their next court appearance on January 29, 2013.

“They will be applying for bail next week.”

Samuel Mabena, 27, Chris Moyo, 25, and Paida Fish, 19, face charges of murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances.

The case was put off last month as the three accused told the court they needed to finalise legal representation.

Sanders was shot at the Thatch Haven Country Lodge outside Brits during an armed robbery on September 22.

He was attending the 21st birthday party of his nephew when three men stormed in and demanded that customers lie on the floor and hand over their valuables.

When they fled the scene, random shots were fired. Sanders was hit in the hand and abdomen.

He died of his wounds in Kalafong Hospital, Pretoria, the following day. - Sapa
