Cape Town - The case against Carlton Douw, accused of murdering 19-year-old Ge-Audrey Green then stuffing her body into the drawer of a bed, was on Friday transferred to the Western Cape High Court.

The 21-year-old, who abandoned his bail application in March, appeared briefly in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s Court on Friay to hear that, due to the severity of the crime the case would instead be heard by the High Court.

 Green’s badly decomposed body was found in the drawer in a flat in Kotze Street, in Scottsville in Kraaifontein, on February 9. She had last been seen three days previously.

 The flat was occupied by Douw’s parents, who were not home when the crime was committed.

His mother made the horror discovery after noticing a strange smell coming from her son’s room. She called the police immediately and her son, who had been sent to a local shop, was tracked down and arrested.

 Douw’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 30.

Green’s murder shook the Kraaifontein community where, three weeks previously, Johan de Jager had allegedly killed and dismembered 16-year-old Charmaine Mare.

Mare, from Mpumalanga, had been visiting her friend in Kraaifontein. The friend’s mother was De Jager’s girlfriend.
