Johannesburg - Two men accused of killing a Muldersdrift man during a robbery appeared briefly in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The case against Alfred Zwane and Samson Madlaza was postponed to 15 October as the discharge from hospital of a third accused, Maniri Lubisi, was being awaited.

Zwane and Madlaza remained in custody.

The three allegedly robbed and killed 50-year-old André Jordaan last month.

Police said Jordaan was with other people outside his home when a barking dog alerted them to a group of men carrying firearms. The robbers entered the house and shot Jordaan seven times. He died in hospital.

Several hours later, while police were investigating this robbery, they heard reports of a second attack.

Police chased a group of men to a field near the N14 Swartkop off-ramp, where a shoot-out ensued. One of the men was wounded, another ran away, and two others were arrested. The men faced charges of armed robbery and murder.

Police were investigating whether they were part of the gang which killed Alyssa Botha, 13, and wounded her 17-year-old sister and her father in a robbery in the same area two weeks ago.

Police arrested five men in connection with the robbery, but all of them were released because of a lack of evidence. One of the men had a memory card belonging to one of the girls.
