Cape Town - Two men accused of killing Cape Town schoolboy Enrico Martin appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Wilston Stoffels, 18, and Jevon Snyman, 19, would return to court on 13 June for their bail applications, said NPA regional spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila.

Martin, 18, was shot nearly two weeks ago when entering the Spes Bona High School premises in Athlone.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk said at the time that three men - two of them armed - dressed in school tracksuit tops approached Martin.

One of them shot him in the head.

Provincial Education MEC Donald Grant said paramedics revived Martin and took him to Groote Schuur Hospital, but he died soon after arrival.

Snyman was arrested a day after the shooting in Athlone.

Stoffels was arrested in Bonteheuwel the following day.

The case was recently transferred from the Athlone Magistrate's Court.
