Johannesburg - Detectives conducted another search at the premises of the ex-husband of murdered Pretoria mother Chanelle Henning on Wednesday, the Hawks said.

Spokesperson McIntosh Polela said the raid at Nico Henning's premises was part of ongoing investigations.

The Hawks conducted a similar search at his business premises in Hartbeespoort Dam in May.

According to Eyewitness News, investigators were searching for documents he had failed to disclose during the previous raid.

Nico is Chanelle Henning's ex-husband. Chanelle was shot while driving home after dropping off her child at a pre-primary school.

Two men on a motorbike overtook her car and fired several shots.

Police questioned Nico shortly after the murder but later released him without charging him.

Five people were subsequently arrested in connection with the murder.

Last year, police officers Gerhardus du Plessis and Martin Pieterse pleaded guilty to the murder.

They are now both serving 18-year jail sentences.

In their court appearances, Du Plessis and Pieterse implicated former Nigerian Olympic athlete Ambrose Monye in the murder.

They claimed Monye hired them to carry out the shooting and promised them R10 000 each. Monye was denied bail and remains in police custody.

An investigating officer told the Pretoria Magistrate's Court that a fourth co-accused, Andre Gouws, was called from Nico's phone on the weekend of 6 November 2011.

Chanelle was killed on 8 November.

Captain Petrus van der Spuy told the court "a caller" told Gouws not to go ahead with the murder as "the bitch has the baby this weekend".

Gouws was denied bail in March.

A fifth man arrested in connection with the murder was sentenced in July.

Preshan Singh was sentenced to five years' imprisonment, suspended for five years, for organising the firearm used to kill Chanelle.

The cases against Monye and Gouws have been transferred to the High Court in Pretoria, where they are scheduled for trial from 19 to 30 November.
