Slain mom 'saw bikers day before hit'

2011-11-09 08:28
Johannesburg - The Pretoria mother who was shot dead by two men on a motorcycle had told her father that a bike had followed her to work.

Chanelle Henning, 26, told her father Ivan Saincic, 49, that she was worried about the bike that had followed her to work on Monday, reported the TimesLive.

Her father told her to look out for it again on Tuesday so something could be done about it if it happened again.

But on Tuesday Henning was shot dead as she left the Montessori Preschool where she dropped off her son.

Henning was shot three times and died on the scene.

A spokesperson from the neighbourhood watch said residents had told him that the same motorbike was waiting near the school before the shooting.

Shocked family members gathered at the scene and her mother cried uncontrollably.

Media reports speculated whether the shooting had anything to do with her estrangement from her husband, with whom she was locked in a difficult divorce process.

A police spokesperson said they were hoping to make an arrest soon.
