Johannesburg - The sentence handed to cousins Lindon Wagner and Robin Harwood for the satanic killing of Kirsty Theologo was not fair, Harwood's mother Dierdre Moses said on Wednesday.

"The sentence was a bit harsh, the judge does not understand the merits of the case," Moses said.

"There is evil out there," she said.

Moses said Wagner and Harwood did not plan the murder.

"We believe they were not in control of their actions. The devil is real, if you open the door he will come in," she said.

Moses said Wagner and Harwood were victims of the devil and it was unfair that Wagner and Harwood had to suffer.

Lindon Wagner was jailed for life on Wednesday for killing Kirsty Theologo during an apparent Satanic ritual in Johannesburg in October 2011.

The South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg also sentenced Wagner to 18 years' imprisonment for the attempted murder of Theologo's friend.

Wagner's cousin Robin Harwood was sentenced to 20 years in jail for Theologo's murder.
