Mngeni guilty of killing Dewani

Xolile Mngeni has been found guilty of shooting dead bride Anni Dewani. See the pictures from the Western Cape High Court.

Cape Town - Xolile Mngeni stood expressionless as a Western Cape High Court judge found him guilty on Monday of Swedish bride Anni Dewani's murder.

His family watched wide-eyed from the gallery above as Judge Robert Henney handed down his judgment.

Hordes of photographers crowded around Mngeni when he walked back down to the cells, using his walking frame.

Henney found Mngeni, 25, guilty of robbery with aggravating circumstances, premeditated murder and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.

He was acquitted on a kidnapping charge as this was executed as part of a single chain of events leading up to the murder.

Dewani was killed in Gugulethu on November 13 2010 and her body found the next day.

"The State has proven its case beyond reasonable doubt," Henney said.

"The case against the accused is overwhelming and the accused could barely avoid the avalanche of evidence from crashing down on him."
