Cape teenagers jailed
Johannesburg - Police said on Friday that two teenagers convicted of robbery and murder had been jailed for 18 and 25 years by the Plettenberg Bay Regional Court.
Spokesperson Bernadine Steyn said: "Athenkosi Makazu, 18, was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment for murder and 10 years for house robbery with aggravating circumstances and housebreaking and theft.
Sibongile Ndzelani, 19, was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment for murder and 15 years for the other crimes."
They will serve their sentences concurrently.
They were sentenced for a murder and robbery they committed in Plettenberg Bay in November last year.
They had broken into the home of Richard Carr and his wife in Navesink Crescent in the early hours of the morning on November 2 2010.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Carr, 57, dead in the bedroom of the house after he had been stabbed several times.
His wife, 42, was taken to hospital after being found with a stab wound in her right arm and several facial injuries.
Makazu and Ndzelani were arrested two days later and were found in possession of a lamp, wallet, cellular phone and simcard and other equipment taken from the house.
