The man accused of Uyinene Mrwetyana’s rape and murder is expected back in the Wynberg magistrate’s court on Tuesday.
The former post office employee can not be named due to a court order.
Mrwetyana disappeared on 24 August.
Her burnt body was found in a shallow grave, a few days later.
Police Minister Bheki Cele revealed gruesome details of her murder when he attended her funeral.
The man was convicted in 1998 of carjacking and given an eight-year sentence. He served five years while three years were suspended.
