"No bail! Rot in jail!"

These were the words scores of women chanted as they protested outside the Athlone Magistrate's Court, dressed in black, on Thursday.

Inside the court, three men arrested in connection with the murder of Cape Town horse rider, Meghan Cremer, appeared.

"There was no reason for Meghan to have been killed the way that she was," SA Women Fight Back founder, Bronwyn Litkie, said.

The group launched an online petition to prevent the accused from being granted bail.

Two of the accused did not lodge bail applications but a third intends to apply for bail on September 11.

All three men arrested for their alleged involvement in the Cremer's murder and the theft of her car, have pending cases and past convictions, a packed court heard on Thursday.

Jeremy Sias, 27, Charles Daniels, 39, and Shiraaz Jaftha, 34 were initially charged with the possession of Cremer's vehicle.

A murder charge was added on Thursday after one of them was understood to have pointed out to detectives where her body could be found - five days after her disappearance.
