Cape Town - Two youths accused of shooting dead a Wynberg, Cape Town, pupil appeared in the Western Cape High Court on Friday, the National Prosecuting Authority said.

Spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said the pre-trial hearing was postponed to February 28.

“The matter was postponed for plea and sentencing agreements,” he said.

Wilston Stoffels, who was 18 at the time of the crime, and Jevon Snyman who was 19, were arrested for Glenrico Martin's murder.

Martin, 19, was shot in the back of the head as he entered the Spes Bona Secondary School in Athlone, on the Cape Flats, on May 15, 2013.

The two accused remain in police custody. In earlier proceedings, they waived their right to apply for bail.
