Cape Town - Three men are expected in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court soon after two bodies were found in shallow graves in a backyard.

The bodies were found at the back of a house in Delft South on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said the corpses found on the property in Sering Street have not yet been identified.

"A double murder case was opened for investigation and a post-mortem will be conducted to determine identity and cause of death," he said.

Three suspects aged 28, 33 and 51 have since been arrested in connection with the incident and have been charged with murder, Van Wyk said.
