Ex cop guilty of murdering lover

2008-06-12 00:00

Former Plessislaer police inspector Sipho Dennis Shabalala (40) was found guilty in the high court in Pietermaritzburg yesterday of the premeditated murder of his common law wife, Sindi Mary Cele (42), in November 2005.

The judge said it was common cause that the couple were not on good terms about four days prior to the shooting, so much so that Shabalala chased Cele away from his home in Imbali.
