Verdict expected in Chanelle Henning murder trial

2013-11-25 08:30

Judgement was expected to be delivered in the High Court in Pretoria today in the case of two men implicated in the murder of Chanelle Henning.

Henning (26) was gunned down in Faerie Glen shortly after she had dropped her son off at crèche in November 2011.

Andre Gouws and former Nigerian Olympic athlete Ambrose Monye have pleaded not guilty to five charges relating to an alleged conspiracy to murder her.

The State alleged Monye and Gouws conspired with former policeman Gerhardus “Doepie” du Plessis and Willem “Pike” Pieterse (alias Tattoo).

Du Plessis and Pieterse were serving 18-year prison terms after confessing to their roles in the murder.

In his testimony, Gouws admitted that Chanelle’s husband, Nico Henning, asked him to do surveillance on Henning to see if she used drugs.

The couple were going through a divorce and fighting over custody of their child.
