Sibusiso Mkhize, 20, Xolani Letuke, 24, and Mandla Dlamini, 25, appeared in the Johannesburg high court yesterday for arguments in mitigation and aggravation of sentence.

The trial was adjourned to August 14 and 15 to allow the state time to obtain reports from the victim and a probation officer. - Khanyisile Nkosi
