Ex-Bulls player in court for axe murders
Durban - The murder case against former Blue Bulls flanker Phindile Joseph Ntshongwana was postponed by the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Ntshongwana, accused of axing three people to death in Lamontville earlier this year, briefly appeared in court on Tuesday.
The case was postponed to October 27 to allow the parties to study medical reports compiled by two doctors who assessed Ntshongwana, and so the matter could be referred to the high court.
Ntshongwana was sent for mental assessment after his father Liston told the court his son had psychiatric problems.
In June, a decision was taken to admit him to the Fort Napier Hospital in Pietermaritzburg, where a state psychologist and a private psychiatrist examined him.
The doctors concluded he was fit to stand trial.
