Bloemfontein - Three men accused of raping and murdering a 13-year-old girl were denied bail in the Virginia Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Free State police said.

The case was postponed to January 26 for further investigation, said Sergeant Tlalanyane Pakela.

The three were arrested earlier this month when the body of the girl was found floating in a canal in Meloding.

It is believed Motlalepule Lekhoaba and her 16-year-old boyfriend were standing in the street when they were accosted by three men, armed with knives.

The boy ran off and the girl was subsequently taken to a field where she was raped and killed.

      You don't know the circumstances, maybe he went to get help. Besides if he'd stayed we'd must likely be reading about a double murder now. Personally I'd have stayed and fought to at least take a piece of him with me but that's the way I was brought up (and I know the police response times). Kids in schools these days are taught to run for help.

    And what is a 13YR OLD doing with a boyfriend. If she had stayed at home with her parents and not sleeping with boys at that age she would be alive and safe.

      Well they were just standing in the street talking when this happened. Although I agree that a 13 year old girl should be careful and protected etc, it doesn't say they were sleeping together... assumptions assumptions.

      lets not forget she is the victim here
