The 35-year-old soldier who allegedly stabbed his fiancee in the Atteridgeville magistrate's court a month ago was denied bail at the Pretoria magistrate's court yesterday.

Smangaliso Petrus Nkosi was charged with attempted murder after he allegedly attacked Ineth Sibongile Ngobeni, 26, a nurse at the SANDF's Military 1 Hospital.

Magistrate Fikiswa Ntlati said Nkosi may endanger Ngobeni's life.

Nkosi allegedly stabbed Ngobeni three times during a domestic violence trial in the presence of a female magistrate who had just presided over the couple's case.

The case was postponed to March 6.
