JOHANNESBURG - Limpopo police said six teenagers accused of killing three children will return to the Mookgopong Magistrate's Court on January 23.

The alleged victims were aged between nine and 12.

On Thursday, the case was postponed when the suspects appeared in court for the first time this year.

The suspects, aged between 12 and 14, are accused of stoning to death brothers Bafana and Richard Kekana and their cousin Johanna.

The crime took place in August.

Johanna was allegedly raped before she was killed.

Limpopo police spokesperson Superintendent Ronel Otto said, "We are awaiting a report from the psychologist [on the suspects' mental state]."
