Cash slip for killing body parts of a defendant while awaiting a psychiatric examination order.

After failing to pay his lawyer, the actuarial science graduate will have to wait until Friday to have his application for a psychiatric examination submitted. Flavio Hlabangwane, 26, appeared briefly in the Protea magistrate's court on Tuesday on a murder charge after body parts were discovered in his fridge in Protea Glen, Soweto, on November 13. His lawyer, Gift Mncube, informed the court that he would be unable to proceed with the case since he had not received financial instructions.

"There is a minor snag. The accused's family informed me that they do not currently have finances. They requested more time to acquire the finances needed to move the case further. "By Friday, I will get the financial orders to proceed," Mncube added. Magistrate David Mhango rescheduled the case until December 3. Hlabangwane's case was previously postponed when it was revealed that he attempted suicide before to his initial appearance in court.
