Cape Town - The bail hearing of Cameron Wilson, accused of murdering teenager Lekita Moore, was postponed in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Wilson is accused of the stabbing and mutilation of the teenager last month. The State has said it will oppose his release on bail.

The teenager was found dead in a field in Nooitgedacht in September. She had left home the night before to go to a karaoke party in neighbouring Valhalla Park.

She was discovered naked with knife wounds to her upper body. One of her nipples and her vagina had been mutilated.

The incident has drawn the ire of locals demanding justice for the teenager.

Threats have also been made against the accused, with a number of court goers warning they would take the law into their own hands should the 19-year-old be released.

The matter is expected to be heard on November 25.
