Johannesburg - Two men suspected of torturing and beating a 78-year-old woman to death appeared in the Belfast Magistrate's Court on Friday, Mpumalanga police said.

"The murder case was postponed to next week Friday," Captain Leonard Hlathi said.

The proceedings were postponed for the two accused to get legal representation.

The men, aged 33 and 34, were arrested after they were found in possession of a digital camera and money belonging to Johanna Moore.

Moore's body was found by her gardener.

She had facial injuries and burn wounds on both arms. Police suspect that the burns were caused by an electric iron, found near the body.
