Skierlik killer marries in jail

2012-02-10 10:04
Johannesburg - The man serving four life sentences for shooting dead four people in a North West informal settlement got married in jail this week, The Times reported on Friday.

Johan Nel, 23, married Maryna Naude, 18, at the Ramochana prison in Rustenburg, in a short ceremony. As he was being kept in the prison's maximum security section he would not be allowed to touch her.

"It was not a very long ceremony and could have taken about half an hour at the most," correctional services spokesperson Sarie Peens was quoted as saying.

"He was allowed to wear his private clothes and immediately after the ceremony, the families left and he went back to his prison clothes.

"He is a prisoner and that means he cannot have any contact with her. He will not have any conjugal rights."

Nel shot and killed Sivuyile Peyi, 37, Annah Moiphitlhi, 31, her 3-month-old daughter Elizabeth, and Tshepo Motshelanoka, 10, in the Skierlik informal settlement near Swartruggens on January 14, 2008. Eight other people were injured.

He was sentenced to four life sentences by the North West High Court in Mmabatho on November 21, 2008.
