Johannesburg - Three men accused of killing a liquor thief were granted R1 500 bail each by the Sekhukhune Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Limpopo police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said David Ntsodi, 72, Isaac Selatole, 29, and Andrew Kgolane, 31, would be back in court on May 25.

The men allegedly beat Prince Morowane, 29, to death on April 2. They had accused him stealing alcohol from Ntsodi's bottle store in Mampuru village.

A group of men angry about the killing burned Ntsodi's shop down afterwards. Eight of them also appeared in Sekhukhune Magistrate's Court on Tuesday - on charges of public violence and malicious damage to property.
