Woman in court for plotting Blue Bull murder

2010-11-22 07:26

A 47-year-old woman will appear in the Pretoria Magistrates Court today for allegedly conspiring to kill Blue Bulls rugby player Deon Helberg.

The woman, who allegedly had an affair with the 21-year-old Helberg, who was her daughter’s boyfriend, was arrested in an undercover police operation on Thursday.

She was nabbed by the Hawks at a shopping centre in Pretoria after she allegedly handed over money to two Nigerian men, who she believed had killed Helberg.

She had allegedly hired them earlier to kill him.

But the two “hitmen” worked with the police to catch her, and even showed her a fake picture of Helberg lying “dead” in a pool of blood, as proof that she should pay them.
