Pretoria - Murder accused Nico Henning appeared briefly in the District Court in Pretoria on Tuesday.

The case was postponed to 13 November for the completion of further investigations.

"We agreed on a postponement and are confident that we will be able to proceed with the matter on that date," said prosecutor Gerrie Nel.

Henning would appear again in court in the interim before the set date, specifically for a matter regarding his bail conditions.

"The court will be notified once we agree on a date for the interim appearance," Nel said.

Murder

Henning is to face trial for the murder of his estranged wife, Chanelle Henning.

The 26-year-old was shot dead shortly after dropping off their child at a crèche in Faerie Glen, Pretoria, in November 2011.

Nico Henning's friend, Andre Gouws, 49, and former Nigerian athlete Ambrose Monye have both been sentenced to life in prison.

Two other men, Gerhardus "Doepie" du Plessis and Willem "Pike" Pieterse, are serving 18-year prison terms after confessing to their roles in the killing.

As part of his bail conditions, Henning had to report to the Hartbeespoort police station on Mondays and Fridays; he was not allowed within a kilometre of any international point of departure; and had to get permission from the investigating officer, Captain Petrus van der Spuy, to approach any of his private planes.

He was not allowed to leave Gauteng and North West without prior approval of the investigating officer.

Henning was prohibited from having any contact with a list of potential witnesses, including Gouws, Monye, numerous Henning family members, and employees of Avis car rental.
