The case against Sandile Mantsoe, accused of murdering Karabo Mokoena, has been postponed to the 30th of August.
The 27 year old made a brief appearance at the Johannesburg Magistrate court on Friday.
Mantsoe was denied bail last month following the discovery of the body of his 22 year old ex-lover, who was found burnt beyond recognition in a veld, in Lyndhurst, north of Johannesburg, in April.
The forex trader faces an additional charge of defeating the ends of justice.
Mantsoe has denied murdering Mokoena, saying he found her already dead, before setting her alight and dumping his body in a veld.
