Cape Town - The State has withdrawn charges against one of the men accused of killing gay nightclub owner Bruno Bronn, it was reported on Tuesday.

Prosecutor Carine Teunissen withdrew the charges against Kurt Erispe during a pre-trial conference in the Western Cape High Court on Monday, the Cape Times reported.

Erispe appeared briefly with John Frederick Coetzee, Fareez Allie and Achmat Toffa.

Toffa was in custody for a separate matter and the other two were out on bail.

They face charges of premeditated murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances. Both charges carry life sentences.

According to the report, the reason for withdrawing charges against Erispe would be revealed in the trial.

The matter was provisionally postponed to 4 March.

Bronn, 50, was found murdered in his Green Point home on 7 February last year. According to the indictment, he was strangled and died as a result of suffocation.

He owned the popular nightclubs Bronx and Navigaytion in Somerset Road, Green Point.
