Satanic ritual trial postponed

Johannesburg - The trial of three men and a girl accused of killing a teenager in an apparent satanic ritual has been postponed to April 15 by the High Court in Johannesburg, Eyewitness News reported on Friday.

Lindon Wagner, 21, Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, have been in custody since being denied bail in November last year.

A 15-year-old girl, who was also implicated in the killing, remains in the custody of her parents.

In October last year, Kirsty Theologo, 18, was doused with petrol and set alight on a hill behind the Linmeyer swimming pool in Julius Street, southern Johannesburg. She died a week later in Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Lester Moody and Jeremy King, both 18, entered into a plea deal with the State and, on March 29, they were each sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment, five years of which was suspended. They are expected to testify against the other accused.
