Cape Town - Thandi Maqubela, convicted of killing her husband, acting judge Patrick Maqubela, will appear in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday for pre-sentencing proceedings.

The Star newspaper reported last Wednesday that the court had given her more time to file papers against a court order that resulted in her share of her husband's estate being frozen.

Last Tuesday, Muhammed Kagee, lawyer for the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU), asked the court for an interim order to be extended until 18 November.

The AFU obtained a provisional restraint order last month and is seeking to strip Maqubela of her share - believed to be worth around R7.2m - of the estate of her husband, acting judge Patrick Maqubela, who was killed in June 2009.

According to the newspaper, this was on the grounds that her share constitutes the "proceeds of unlawful activities".

In November, the same court found Maqubela guilty of killing her husband.

She was also found guilty of forging her husband's will and committing fraud by causing potential prejudice to his estate.

She is being held at Pollsmoor Prison until the sentencing procedures.
