The case against a 22 year-old man, Andre’ Tieman, who was arrested for the murder of 14 year-old Micaylen Hendricks, was on Wednesday postponed by the Uitenhage Magistrate's court to next week.

Hendricks disappeared last week on Wednesday when her mother sent her to the shop. Her body was later found in a shack in Tambovile, on Sunday evening, it reportedly appeared to have been strangled.

Uitenhage police swiftly arrested Tieman on Sunday, after he apparently showed the police where the body of Hendricks was.

He is expected to make a formal bail application next week Wednesday.
