Chanelle Henning murder accused in court

2011-12-14 08:23
Johannesburg - Three men will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday in connection with the murder of Faerie Glen mother Chanelle Henning.

Last month, two of the men, Gerhardus du Plessis and Willem Pieterse entered into plea-bargain talks with the State.

Prosecutor Andrea Johnson previously said that should the negotiations be concluded earlier, the matter may be disposed of by the court on or before Wednesday.

Johnson conveyed this to the court during the appearance of Du Plessis and Pieterse alongside a third accused, Andre Gouws, 47.

Du Plessis, a suspended police detective, has confessed to being the one who gunned Henning down.

The 26-year-old was shot dead on Tuesday November 8 while driving home after dropping off her 5-year-old son at a pre-primary school in Manitoba Drive in Faerie Glen, Pretoria.

Witnesses told the police that two men on a motorbike overtook her car and fired several shots.

One hit her in the chest, fatally wounding her. Her car continued moving for about 100m before crashing into a rock on the pavement.
