The Vanderbijlpark man, accused of killing his wife and two children appeared in Vanderbijlpark Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

Fanie Du Preez’s trial was postponed until 11 April and he will remain in custody until then. Members of both families were in the courtroom. De Preez did not communicate with his wife’s family, but waved to his relatives before staring straight ahead for the rest of his appearance.

Du Preez wore blue jeans and blue and white checked shirt with a white collar. Du Preez said he no longer needed legal aid as his family has hired Jaco van Wyk as his lawyer.

Du Preez has been behind bars since December, which was when the court rejected his bail application.

The court heard during the bail application that Du Preez gave police contradicting stories of what happened the night his family was murdered.
