A request to transfer the two men accused of murdering a Woodstock police officer, was refused by a Cape High Court Magistrate yesterday.

Magistrate Jashtree Steyn ruled that the two would remain in custody at the Bellville South Police Station after there was an appeal to transfer the men to Pollsmoor Prison.

He remanded them until April 23.

The twosome aged 25 and 22 were arrested after Inspector Lourens le Roux was shot and killed outside the Woodstock Police Station last week.

Prosecutor Junatia Swartz told a daily paper that information still had to be gathered pertaining to bail.

She added that there are numerous other cases pending against the two.
