Port Elizabeth - The trial involving two men who allegedly murdered 12-year-old Aliya 'Angel' Tee is expected to get underway in the Port Elizabeth High Court on Tuesday. 

Tee, 12, was killed in June last year when gunmen, posing as cops, forced down the back door of her Barberry Street home in Bethelsdorp. 

Nealon Redhouse, 18, and Deon Harmse, 24 have been charged with Tee's murder and the attempted murder of her parents. 

Other charges against the pair include housebreaking with intent to commit murder and unlawful possession of firearm and ammunition. 

The men are believed to belong to the 'Spotbouer Gang'. 

Tee was a Grade 7 pupil and prefect at Strelitzia Primary School in Port Elizabeth's Northern Areas. 

Her father, Edmund, was shot and incapacitated while trying to fend off the attackers, the indictment reads. After the men shot Edmund they then proceeded to look for other family members in the home. 

Tee and her mother, Candice, were in the bathroom when they were discovered by the gunmen. 

The schoolgirl was shot in the head, according to the State.
