Johannesburg - A radio DJ accused of killing his girlfriend is expected to appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto on Wednesday.

Donald Sebolai, aged 37, is charged with murdering his 32-year-old girlfriend Rachel Dolly Tshabalala.

At his previous appearance on Thursday, wearing a grey-hooded jacket and jeans, Sebolai stood attentively in the dock while magistrate Herman Badenhorst read the charge to him.

"You are charged with premeditated murder, which is a schedule six offence, for which you could get a life sentence if convicted," Badenhorst said.

In terms of schedule six of the Criminal Procedure Act an accused must show exceptional circumstances exist to justify their release on bail.

Prosecutor Tebogo Lesebo said the State was waiting for a post-mortem report and statements from more witnesses.

Sebolai was arrested last Tuesday after being on the run for over a week.

Tshabalala was stabbed several times and left in a locked flat in Jabulani, Soweto, on 29 June.

Sebolai is a presenter at Soweto-based community radio station, Jozi FM.
