The man accused of stabbing Cape Town mom Miche Samuels to death in front of their child on a Cape Town road, will stay in custody for now.

Abdul Salam's case was postponed in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court until 9 June for further investigation.

Samuels was stabbed to death while she was driving him and their one-year-old child home from court in Wynberg on 4 March.

People who stopped to help, found Samuels slumped in the driver's seat and covered in blood.

Salam previously told the court that they had been to the Wynberg court earlier in the day to deal with a domestic issue.

He did not reveal what the dispute was about, but the couple was referred to the police station next to the court.

At the time, family speaking on the sidelines of the matter, seemed divided over whether it had to do with him planning to return to Bangladesh with the children, or if it was something else.

However, after that, Samuels drove them home.

During the journey she was stabbed in the chest and neck and Salam got out of the car and ran away.

A motorist also crashed into the back of their vehicle when it suddenly stopped.

Salam was apprehended and the road was closed off for the initial investigation of the scene.

He had already told the court he would not apply for bail because he has nowhere to go.
