High court Judge Chris Nicholson yesterday sentenced Fanana Jerome Nhlumayo (20), of Port Edward, to an effective 25 years in jail for offences including the attempted murders of American lawyer David Bovino and his then South African fiancée, Jessica Webster, at a holiday home in Leisure Bay on August 15, 2006.

Refusing Nhlumayo leave to appeal, Judge Nicholson commented that although he was a young man (18 years old) at the time, his “catalogue” of offences was depressing and offensive. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
