Cellphone evidence heard in Chanelle case

2012-02-15 13:24
Pretoria - The former Nigerian Olympic athlete accused of hiring the killers of a Pretoria mother phoned her estranged husband's best friend 55 times the week before the murder, the Pretoria Magistrate's Court heard on Wednesday.

Cellphone forensic analyst Francois Moller told the court there had been 55 calls between Nigerian Ambrose Monye and Andre Gouws and another 34 calls from Monye that Gouws ignored.

Gouws had phoned Monye 26 times in the week before November 8, when Chanelle Henning was shot dead.

Moller was giving evidence in a bail application by Gouws, who is also accused of arranging Henning's murder.

She was shot dead by two men on a motorbike after dropping off her child at a nursery school in Faerie Glen.

Moller said that all records on Gouws's handset detailing calls between him and Henning's husband Nico prior to the murder had been deleted.

Calls to Monye had also been deleted, but cellphone records had shown the deleted call records.

Henning and her husband were separated and were involved in a custody battle over their child.
