- The three men accused of murdering Meghan Cremer have launched a new bail application
- The trio argue that they are breadwinners for their families and that their continued stay in prison would financially impact them
- One of the accused had helped police locate the body in a Philippi sand mine
Jeremy Sias, Charles Daniels and Shiraaz Jaftha are attempting once more to obtain bail.
Daily Voice reports that Sias confessed to the murder of Meghan Cremer, allegedly after being beaten by police officers.
The trio has approached the Athlone Magistrates' Court with a fresh application, claiming that their families are financially dependant on them.
Cremer went missing in August before Sias helped authorities retrieve her body, which had been hidden in a Philippi sand mine.
The three accused had been arrested after police tracked down the victim's stolen Toyota Auris. The case gained notoriety after it emerged that Sias had worked on the same farm as Cremer and had known her well.
The case was ultimately postponed until 27 December, with the three facing charges including vehicle theft and defeating the ends of justice.
Sias is the only accused facing charges of murder in the harrowing case that gripped South Africa, Briefly.co.za gathered.
