JOHANNESBURG - Four people will be appearing in court on Monday morning for the murder of University of Johannesburg Professor Carl Mischke.

Mischke was found dead in his Norwood home a week ago, making him a possible ninth victim in a series of murders of gay men across Gauteng and Cape Town.

In November police told Eyewitness News they believe the murders are the work of a gang targeting the gay community.

Mischke's body was discovered by his domestic workers last Monday.

He was naked and laying face flat on his bed covered with a duvet.

He had multiple stab wounds to his body.

The first man linked to the murder was arrested on Thursday and police continued their manhunt for an accomplice.

On Friday two men found in the possession of Mischke's stolen car were apprehended and police then found the alleged second accomplice on Saturday.

All four men are expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court on Monday morning.

Last week it was revealed a task team, who are investigating eight other murders involving gay men, would be probing Mischke's death.
