Bloemfontein - Three men accused of killing a Free State policeman during a robbery appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
The case against Motlatsi Mphou, Motlatsi Namane and Khadebe Mohlalisi was postponed to January 24 for a formal bail hearing.
The men were allegedly part of a group of four gunmen who robbed a shop in Kopanong, Bloemfontein, last week.
When they tried to flee, police arrived and they ran back into the shop.
They re-emerged from the shop with guns blazing, hitting Sergeant Molahlehi Ephraim Mokhasi, 41, who died at the scene.
