Johannesburg - The trial of two men implicated in the murder of a Muldersdrift man was postponed by the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Prosecutor Micky Thesner told the court a third accused, Maniri Lubisi, was still in hospital.

"The hospital hasn't indicated when he'll be ready for release," she said.

The case was postponed until November 5 for Lubisi, and for further investigation.

The two accused in court, Alfred Zwane and Samson Madlaza, stood before the magistrate in an empty court room and were told they would remain in police custody.

They were allegedly part of a group which robbed and shot 50-year-old Andre Jordaan at his home.

Police said Jordaan was with other people outside 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.

Police were investigating whether the three men 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.

Five men were arrested 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.

The matter would continue on November 5.
