CAPE TOWN -The case against three men accused of the murder of Strandfontein resident Chad Baron, has once again been postponed in the Mitchells Plain Magistrates Court.

Only one of the accused will apply for bail when the case resumes next month.

26-year-old Baron died in mid-July.

He spent about a month in a coma after he was stabbed more than a dozen times and left for dead in a derelict building near his Strandfontein home.

While Warren Chellan and Ricardo Jackson have abandoned their bail applications, Romario Jenneker is expected to push ahead with his bid to be released when he appears in court again next month.

Baron's relatives have vowed to continue petitioning against his bail application.

His murder has sparked renewed calls from the community for the derelict building, where he was left for dead, to be demolished.

Residents say the building situated in an unlit area of Camp Road is notorious for criminal activity.
