Case postponed

Blessing Bveni, 34, the man charged with the murders of Ian McPherson, 68, and Doug Notten, 57, slain within weeks of each other, made a brief appearance in the Simon’s Town Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday July 3. His appearance was delayed as there was no interpreter, and the case was postponed – to a date that has yet to be confirmed – for further investigation. Family and friends of Mr Notten and Mr McPherson attended court, from left, are private investigator Hansie Linde, Cathy Davis, Jane Notten, Caroline Voget, Ian Scott, Ren Brand, Pete McPherson and Mandy Edyvean.
