Three men arrested in connection with the kidnapping and murder of Cape Town horse rider Meghan Cremer will spend their Christmas and New Year behind bars.
They appeared in the Athlone Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, where prosecutor Emily van Wyk informed them that the investigation was not yet finished.
She said that forensic evidence, reports and statements were still outstanding and asked that the matter be postponed until January 27 to wrap it up.
Magistrate Keith Le Keur told Shiraaz Jaftha, Jeremy Sias and Charles Daniels to be patient.
"It does take some time for murder charges, for post-mortem reports," he said.
Daniels, 39, blew a kiss to his elderly mother in the public gallery as he was led back to the holding cells. "Lief vir jou [Love you]," he said, before blowing another kiss.
