Life sentence for wife killer

2008-05-06 00:00

Nico Vather (35) was sentenced to life imprisonment by high court Judge Piet Koen here yesterday for the “monstrous” murder of his wife, Valentia (38), in Prestbury on the night of November 2, 2005.

This included evidence surrounding the “somewhat bizarre” relationship between Vather, his alleged mistress, Yasmin Shaik, and his wife. Much time and energy was devoted to Shaik’s relationship with Vather, her alleged complicity in the death of her husband, Adam Shaik, and a contract she allegedly put out on Vather. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
