Nico Henning, accused of killing his estranged wife Chanelle Henning, is expected to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court today.

The court was expected to rule on his bail application.

Henning faces charges of murder and conspiring to murder his wife. The 26-year-old woman was shot dead shortly after dropping off her son at a crèche in Faerie Glen, Pretoria, in November 2011.

On Friday, he told the court he was willing to pay bail of R5 million. His lawyer, Piet van Wyk, said his client was not a flight risk.

Henning’s friend Andre Gouws (49) and former Nigerian athlete Ambrose Monye were recently convicted of the murder.

Two other men, Gerhardus “Doepie” du Plessis and Willem “Pike” Pieterse, are serving 18-year prison terms after confessing to their roles in the murder.
