Man (19) killed 'girlfriend' (13)

2008-07-16 00:00

A high court judge at Ramsgate yesterday jailed a 19-year-old man for 21 years for the murder of his 13-year-old so-called ex-lover in a case he said was also “about a woman’s right to make choices and to say no”.

Miya admitted abducting the girl on August 14 when he took her to Pietermaritzburg against her mother’s will — she disapproved of their relationship. Jwara went with him willingly while he sought work to pay damages for taking her virginity. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
