Murder suspect acquitted after botch up
Johannesburg - The North West man accused of clubbing his wife to death with a hammer in Mahikeng was acquitted by the Mmabatho Regional Court on Friday, according to reports.
Jon Ndlovu was found not guilty by the court that cited negligence on the part of the investigator who did not read Ndlovu's rights when arresting him, the SABC reported.
Ndlovu was arrested last year after he called the police when he found his wife in a pool of blood and her skull cracked, the broadcaster reported.
The SABC reported that the state intends to apply for a leave to appeal.
