Johannesburg - Two men accused of killing a woman appeared in the Sebokeng Magistrate's court on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

The case against the men, aged between 20 and 35, was postponed to Friday for them to obtain legal representation, Warrant Officer Mzimkulu Mthimkulu said.

The men were arrested on Monday morning during a police patrol.

“Police were busy with their routine patrol when they noticed a car not stopping at the stop sign and travelling at high speed, the police stopped it,” Mthimkulu said at the time.

The vehicle was then inspected and the body of a 35-year-old woman was found under a duvet cover with multiple stab wounds.
