Cape Town - A retired Western Cape businessman was injected with heroin and later thrown alive off a cliff near Ceres in January, it emerged in court on Monday.

According to Netwerk24, three people accused of the murder of Moorreesburg resident Johan Kieser, 65, appeared in the Malmesbury Regional Court for a bail application.

Bail was denied.

Linda Siebrits, 38, Charise Doubell, 32, and Hendrik Boonzaaier, 30, are facing charges of murder, attempted murder, aggravated robbery, theft, drug possession and obstructing justice.

Siebrits and Doubell reportedly visited Kieser at his home in early January and used heroin and tik. They allegedly injected him with heroin so that they could get the PIN numbers for his bank cards in order to buy more drugs.

They thought they'd given him an overdose and drove to Cape Town in his car to fetch Boonzaaier. They then threw him off Mitchell's Pass near Ceres, and then returned to Cape Town where they withdrew money from his bank accounts and spent the night in a hotel.

According to the investigating officer, Kieser's autopsy report showed he was still alive when he was thrown off the cliff.

The Daily Voice reported that the two women are believed to be prostitutes and Boonzaaier was their pimp.

Siebrits reportedly handed herself in the day after the murder and pointed out where his body lay.

The case will continue on 29 April.

Kieser was a well-known dog breeder, exhibitor and judge.

The Kennel Association of South Africa paid tribute to him as "a wonderful dogman who will be remembered in so many facets of dogdom in South Africa and Internationally".
