Johannesburg - Four people accused of murdering a rape suspect have appeared in Maluti Magistrate's Court, Eastern Cape police said on Thursday.

The trial of the three women and a man was postponed on Wednesday to 18 December, said police spokesperson Raphael Motloung.

"They were linked to an incident where a group of community members attacked a man whom they accused of raping a 20-year-old woman from the same village," said Motloung.

It is alleged that the man was necklaced with a vehicle tyre before being set alight two weekends ago.

The four were arrested at their homes at Mveyana A/A in Cedarville on Monday.

Investigations were continuing.
