Johannesburg - A man appeared in the Willowvale Magistrate's Court on Monday for allegedly raping and killing a 14-year-old girl, Eastern Cape police said.

The case against the 40-year-old man was postponed to Tuesday due to certain legalities, police spokesperson Jackson Manatha said.

Dokhasi Ncancayi's body was found in a bush on Saturday morning.

"The deceased had suffered upper body injuries," said Manatha.

The 40-year-old man was also arrested on Saturday morning after civilians caught him and handed him over to police.

He allegedly went to her homestead at Matanzima Location, Dadamba Village, Willowvale, on Friday night and asked her to accompany him to another homestead where her mother was.

"Once they were outside the house, he assaulted the girl with a stick," said Manatha.

He then allegedly dragged the girl into nearby bushes and raped and killed her.

The 40-year-old was previously found guilty of raping his niece, who was 10 years old at the time, and was sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment.

He served seven years' imprisonment and was out on parole.
