Satanic killing trial set down for May

2012-04-13 12:10
Johannesburg - The trial of three men and a minor accused of killing a teenager in an apparent satanic ritual was postponed by the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Indictments were served and the trial was set down for 14 May in the South Gauteng High Court.

Lindon Wagner, 21, Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, have been in custody since their bail application was denied in November.

A 15-year-old girl, also implicated in the killing of Kirsty Theologo, 18, was previously released into the custody of her parents.

In October, Theologo was doused with petrol and set alight on a koppie behind the Linmeyer swimming pool in Julius Street, Johannesburg. She died a week later in the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Lester Moody and Jeremy King, both 18, entered into a plea deal with the State in an attempt to get lighter sentences.

On March 29, they were each sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment, five years of which were suspended. In return, they were expected to testify against the remaining four accused.
