CAPE TOWN - The state has completed its forensic report into the rape, mutilation and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen.

Two men accused of the attack appeared in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday, where the matter was postponed to May.

Jonathan Davids, who was denied bail during a previous court appearance, and co-accused Johannes Kana were arrested in February.

The 17-year-old was raped, mutilated and left for dead.

Booysen was found at a construction site, but managed to name Davids as one of her attackers before she died.

The National Prosecuting Authority's Eric Ntabazala said the case resumes on May 21.

"The case has been postponed for further investigation. The forensic results from Pretoria are ready. They will be brought to us in the two weeks."

The incident sent shockwaves throughout the country.

Last week, Wits students took part in a protest against rape.

According to statistics, a person is raped every four minutes in South Africa.
