Cape Town - The four men accused of killing Franziska Blöchliger are expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

The four men are also facing charges of rape and robbery with aggravating circumstances.

The men made their first appearance on March 11. 

Blöchliger, 16 was found in Tokai Forest on March 7.

The teen was robbed of her iPhone, watch, headset and diamond ring.

Prosecutor Kepler Uys said the accused were linked via witnesses and were found in possession of her belongings.

The four applied for a legal aid lawyer.

They were told that they would be held at the Wynberg police cells because the State needed to verify further bail information.

One of the accused told the court he was unhappy because he would not be able to receive visitors there.

He also wanted to take his clothes with him to prison and be able to bath, so asked that he be kept at Pollsmoor Prison instead.

The court assured him that he would get items such as soap and shampoo in the cells.

According to the charge sheet, three of the accused come from Westlake. One lives in Steenberg. It lists their ages as between 21 and 32.
