CAPE TOWN - Two men accused of the murder of 10-year-old Charnelle McCrawl in Manenberg now also face a charge of rape.

The pair appeared briefly in the Wynberg magistrates court on Wednesday following their arrest last week.

Carlo de Kock and Stanton Mano are due back in the dock next month when they will apply for bail.

De Kock is the little girl's uncle.

The two were taken into custody shortly after McCrawl's body was found dumped in Primrose Park last Friday.

Residents held a vigil for the child on Wednesday.
