Chanelle's ex not implicated - lawyer

2011-11-19 10:59

Johannesburg - Slain Faerie Glen mother Chanelle Henning's ex-husband Nico had not been implicated in her murder, according to a newspaper report on Saturday.

Speaking to the Saturday Star, Nico Henning's lawyer, Werner Bruyns said: "There are many rumours going about including that Nico has been implicated or arrested for this, which he has not been."

He declined to comment further.

This was after police arrested five people in connection with the murder, including debt collector Andre Gouws - believed to be Nico Henning's long-time friend.

Former Nigerian Olympic hurdles athlete-turned-debt collector Abrose Monye was also arrested, along with suspended detective constable Gerhardus du Plessis, Willem Pieterse - believed to be the owner and driver of the motorbike used in the attack - and Preshan Singh, who allegedly stole the revolver that was later used to murder Henning.

Last Tuesday, Henning was shot while driving home after dropping off her five-year-old son at a pre-primary school in Manitoba Drive. Witnesses told the police that two men on a motorbike overtook her car and fired several shots. One penetrated her chest, fatally wounding her.

Spokesman for Chanelle's family, Jacques Fourie told the Saturday Star that she had no enemies.

"Except for Andre, Chanelle... did not know those who are alleged to be behind her murder," he said.

The five men would appear in Pretoria Magistrate's Court again on Wednesday.

Du Plessis would appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Thursday for allegedly stealing two murder dockets - for which he was suspended from the police.
