Cape Town - One of the men arrested for the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen bowed his head and stared in disbelief as he was denied bail, according to a report.

The Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday found that Jonathan Davids, 22, had not provided it with exceptional circumstances for his release and the public outrage over the crimes could not be ignored.

The Cape Times reported that the decision shocked his supporters, who thought he would be set free.

Davids and co-accused Johannes Kana are the only two arrested for the crime on 2 February but Booysen, 17, had said from her hospital bed that five or six men were involved.

She had also named "Zwai", which was both the nickname of Davids and another man said to live in Zwelitsha.

Booysen was found severely beaten and disembowelled at a construction site. She died soon after being hospitalised.

Earlier she had spent several hours at a pub. Kana and Davids confirmed they had been at the same pub that night.

The case will resume on 22 April 2013.
