Murder suspect Richard Engelbrecht who faces charges of killing Annestacia Wiese appeared briefly in court where the case was postponed.

Engelbrecht did not apply for bail and the case has been postponed to the 22 of March. He was not been asked to plead and will remain in custody.

Annestacia Wiese’s body was found on Sunday in the ceiling of her home after she went missing on Friday.
According to reports he is also serving two years under correctional supervision for stabbing an American journalist, Laura Wiens who did her internship at Bush Radio.

Speaking to Bush Radio, Wiens sent her condolences to Annestacia's family, and expressed anger that the perpetrator was still out on the street, and not behind bars.

Engelbrecht stabbed Wiens in the head and shoulder at the Iziko SA Museum in February last year.

The Cape Times reports that Annestacia’s mother appeared in court supported by the mother of the five-year-old boy Rafique who was found dead near his Portlands home two years ago.

It is believed that Engelbrecht testified in the case of Rafique’s death. No-one has been arrested for the boy's murder and his disappearance.
