CAPE TOWN - Triple murder accused Henri van Breda has made a brief appearance in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on drug-related charges.

Van Breda and his girlfriend, Danielle Janse Van Rensburg, were arrested in September for having dagga in their possession.

The 21-year-old was arrested while out on R100,000 bail.

He's also accused of killing his parents and older brother at their De Zalze home, outside Stellenbosch, early last year.

Van Breda faces multiple charges relating to the murders of his parents and brother, he's also facing drug possession charges, along with his girlfriend and co-accused, Van Rensburg.

Both appeared to be nervous while in the dock here at the Cape Town Magistrate's court this morning.

Almost immediately, the State requested a postponement while it waits for outstanding documents from the defence.

At a previous court appearance both were granted bail of R1,000 and R200 respectively.

The case resumes next week.
