Cape Town – The pre-trial hearing of two men accused of the murder and rape of Sinoxolo Mafevuka in Khayelitsha is expected to take place in the Western Cape High Court on Friday.

The accused, cousins of Mafevuka's boyfriend, are accused of raping and killing the 19-year-old on March 2 and dumping her body in a communal ablution block in SST Block, in Town Two.

A post-mortem confirmed she had been strangled. Her naked body was found slumped over a toilet. Her clothes had been stuffed into the cistern. Water from the leaking toilet is believed to have washed DNA evidence away.

Police claimed the two were angered by her leaving a Khayelitsha tavern with another man, while their cousin was making plans to marry her.
