'Facebook rapist's' case postponed

Johannesburg - The trial of Facebook rapist Thabo Bester was postponed until April 26 by the Western Cape High Court on Friday, SABC radio reported.

Bester is accused of killing 26-year-old model Nomfundu Tyulu in Milnerton in September. She was found stabbed in the chest, in a room at a bed-and-breakfast.

Bester was dubbed the "Facebook rapist" because he used the social networking site to lure women to meet him throughout the country, by claiming international modelling scouts were interested in them.

He then raped and robbed them at knifepoint.

He was sentenced to 50 years' imprisonment by a Durban court in October for raping and robbing two aspirant models.
