Johannesburg - A man accused of murdering and raping two teenage girls appeared in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

The case against the 31-year-old was postponed to July 8 for further investigation, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

The man was arrested in Snake Park, Doornkop, on June 6 for allegedly raping and murdering the teenagers in Dobsonville, Soweto.

The 16-year-old was shot on May 25 and the 18-year-old strangled last year.
