Four people, including three minors, will appear in the Durban Regional Court on Friday in connection with the murder of a woman who was decapitated.

The three minors, who cannot be named, are being detained at the youth facility of Durban's Westville prison, while Falakhe Khumalo is being held in the Chatsworth police station cells.

He was to assist police in the recovery of the murder weapon.

The case against Khumalo and the three minors was postponed to allow legal aid lawyers to consult them.

Two other people, Sivonkaliso Mbili, 32, and Vusumuzi Gumede, 30, who were arrested for the murder of Desiree Murugan, were being detained at Westville prison.

Their bail hearing was postponed in the same court on Wednesday and they will appear again on September 22.

Municipal workers found Murugan's body at a stadium last month.

The Daily News reported at the time that the 39-year-old had a six-year-old son and worked as a prostitute. She reportedly had a drug habit.

Her head was found in Imfume, on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast.

At the time police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker said one of the accused was a traditional healer.
