Krugersdorp - The legal representative of one of the two suspects who appeared in connection with the murder of three people in Krugersdorp on Tuesday has withdrawn from the case.

Chistian Kruger and Fabian Luff, two of the suspects allegedly implicated in the murder, appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Luff's legal representative withdrew from the matter after not getting any financial instructions from his client. Luff was instructed to apply for legal aid or seek another legal representative.

The State agreed that it was in the interest of justice for Luff to apply for new legal representation.

Kruger's defence, Victor De Silva, wasn't happy about the postponement, saying Luff had had nine days to get representation.

The two suspects stood in court with their hands behind their backs, and wearing hoodies.

Family members of two of the victims were present.

The matter was postponed until June 24, where it will be heard at the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court due to Magistrate Keith Page taking leave.

Page said that the media was not to publish any pictures of the suspects until investigations were concluded.
