The fourth man implicated in the kidnapping, rape and murder of Stellenbosch University student Hannah Cornelius, is expected to apply for bail on Tuesday in the Stellenbosch Magistrates Court.
Eben van Niekerk along with three others co-accused hijacked Cornelius and a friend before sexually assaulting and killing Cornelius while her friend managed to escape.
Van Niekerk will be making his second court appearance where he will apply for bail. According to local sources the other three suspects have abandoned their bail bids.
The National Prosecuting Authority has stated that more charges will be added to the sheet.
The murder of the 21-year-old Stellenbosch student caused major public outcry with many people calling for heightened security on the campus.
Cornelius' body was discovered in Kraaifontein, outside Stellenbosch, hours after the attack.
