RUSTENBURG - The trial against five people accused of the murder of a same-sex couple from Mooinooi in the North West province was postponed in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Monday.

Aaron Sithole, 23, Koos Strydom, 52, Jack Sithole, 18, Marchia Strydom, 22, and Alex Mudau, 36, are accused of killing Joey van Niekerk, 32, and Anisha van Niekerk, 30.
