STELLENBOSCH University student Jacobus Eksteen was yesterday refused bail for the alleged murder and rape of Erin van Rensburg.

He appeared in the Stellenbosch magistrate's court and his case was remanded to August 28 for further investigation.

Eksteen is to face five charges when he eventually appears in the Cape high court.

One of the grounds on which bail was denied was that if he was released on bail it would outrage the community. - Sapa
