JOHANNESBURG - The case against a man accused of killing his girlfriend's five-year-old daughter has been postponed in the Bloemhof Magistrates Court today.

He allegedly beat the child to death after she urinated on a couch while she was sleeping.
When the mother tried to intervene she too was assaulted.
The police's Kealeboga Molale says he will make his second court appearance next week.
"Jacob Seekoei is still in custody and will appear on 11 January for formal bail application."
