Cape Town - Two people accused of shooting dead an off-duty policeman appeared in the Western Cape High Court on Friday.

Marchallino Frazenburg and Octavia Witbooi appeared for a pre-trial conference before Judge Robert Henney.

He warned them to return for another pre-trial conference on 8 August.

They were charged with the death of Constable Brandon Mapoe, 29, last July.

Mapoe was shot dead at a home in Dassenberg Street, Tafelsig.

At the time, Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut said they had reason to believe the shooting was preceded by an argument.

Mapoe had been stationed at the Cape Town central police station.
