Cape Town - The case of four men accused of murdering Stellenbosch student Hannah Cornelius was postponed in the town's magistrate's court on Thursday.

The matter will continue on November 28, due to outstanding forensic reports and the finalisation of the investigation.

Eben van Niekerk, Nashwill Julies, Vernon Witbooi and Geraldo Parsons appeared on charges of murder, kidnapping and rape following the brutal attack on Cornelius and Cheslin Marsh four months ago.

They also heard that their trial is expected to be heard in the Western Cape High Court.

All of the neatly dressed accused remained in custody as they had previously not opted to apply for bail.

Cornelius and Marsh were accosted while they sat in her car in Bird Street, Stellenbosch, in the early hours of May 27.

Cornelius' body was later found lying on the side of a road, near a wine farm outside Stellenbosch.

Her hijacked Citi Golf was also allegedly used in an armed robbery in Northpine, between Brackenfell and Kraaifontein, and police made their first arrests after a dramatic car chase.
