CAPE TOWN - As investigations continue into the van Breda family murder in Stellenbosch, the slain couple's surviving children are still being kept separate from one another.

Martin and Theresa van Breda along with their 22-year-old son, Rudi, were hacked to death at their home in January.

Their 16-year-old Marli van Breda is said to be making progress after weeks in hospital, and is said to be laughing and smiling again.

Her other brother, Henri also survived the attack.

Marli's attorney, Martin Coetzee says she's making remarkable progress.

Coetzee says her caretakers at the rehabilitation clinic have advised that there should be no contact between Marli and her brother Henri.

"They know what is best. At this stage they will also inform her of the circumstances around her parents' death and the speculations that are going about."

Coetzee says Marli has not asked to see her bother Henri.

No arrests have been made in the case as yet.


Coetzee confirmed that a trust had been set up to take care of the teenager and her 20-year-old brother.

The 16-year-old sustained a serious head wound from the attack, Henri escaped with minor injuries.

Weekend reports claim Marli and Henri are set to inherit R200 million.

Coetzee says he's aware there is a trust, but doesn't know how much the siblings will inherit.

"The trust has trustees, they are assisted by an attorney in Pretoria so they look after all the financial notice."

Coetzee says the trustees have been paying for Marli's medical and legal bills.
