CAPE TOWN - Two youths implicated in the murder of a Hanover Park teenager are expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The suspects, aged 15 and 19, were arrested shortly after grade eight learner Justin Abrahams was stabbed to death while on his way home from Mount View High School last week.

It's believed an altercation led to the deadly attack on the 15-year-old.

Abrahams was crossing a field with a safety volunteer when three attackers approached him and stabbed him in the upper body.
