The 23-year-old man reportedly made his first appearance in the Wynberg magistrates court.
According to News24 journalist, Chantall Presence, it was revealed in court that Minnaar made a “full confession” to police after his arrest on Friday.
Reports further state that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said at this stage Minnaar is facing a murder charge and that additional charges may be added as the investigation continues.
