The three are implicated in the murder of the then 57-year-old Mvelase Solomon Mdluli, who was allegedly throttled and suffocated with a black plastic bag while he was watching the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) on January 24, around 22:00.

His car, television set and fan were stolen.
The vehicle was found abandoned in KaNyamazane a few days later.
