The murder and attempted murder case against Charles Barker (40) was postponed to September 10, in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court on July 27.
The case has been postponed due to the pending decision by the director of public prosecutions to transfer the matter to the Pretoria High Court.
Barker, while on parole for murder, was arrested on March 5 after allegedly stabbing Adrianne Coke (21) to death, and stabbing her mother (his fiancée), Bettina-Ann Coke, at their home in Kemston Avenue, Western Extension.
The incident happened at about 7.30am. Adrianne was declared dead on the scene.
