Johannesburg - The trial of three men and a minor accused of killing a teenage girl in an alleged satanic ritual was postponed by the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Lindon Wagner, 21, Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, were expected to appear in court again on Wednesday.

The trio were denied bail and have been held in police custody since November last year. The 15-year-old girl implicated in the killing remains in the custody of her parents.

They face charges of murder, attempted murder, and assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Kirsty Theologo, 18, was doused with petrol and set alight on a hill in October last year. She died at the Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital from her injuries.

Theologo's 14-year-old friend who was with her at the time sustained serious injuries, but survived.

Two other teenagers involved in the apparent ritual entered into a plea bargain with the State. Lester Moody and Jeremy King, both 18, were each sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment, five years of which were suspended.

They were expected to testify against the accused.
