More Satanic ritual accused denied bail
Johannesburg - Two of the five young men accused of setting alight two girls in a suspected Satanic ritual were denied bail on Monday.
The Johannesburg Magistrate's Court found that Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, could produce no exceptional circumstances for bail, as required for schedule six offences by the Criminal Procedures Act.
They would remain in custody until their appearance on Wednesday.
They would appear alongside Lindon Wagner, 21, Lester Moody, 18, and Jeremy King, 18.
A sixth accused, a 16-year-old girl, would also appear.
The court would decide on Wednesday if the trial would be postponed for further investigation or be moved to the South Gauteng High Court.
Kirsty Theologo, 18, died in the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital a week after being doused with petrol and set alight on a koppie behind the Linmeyer swimming pool in Julius Street on October 21.
A 14-year-old friend of hers was also burnt, but she survived. The six youths are charged with murder and attempted murder.
