Shaik ‘wasn’t at murder scene’

2008-04-21 00:00

Pietermaritzburg businesswoman and convicted murderer Yasmin Shaik could not be connected by forensic evidence to the scene of the murder of mother Valentia Vather (38), the high court heard on Friday.

Shaik — who gained notoriety as the so-called “suitcase murderer” for masterminding the murder of her husband’s alleged mistress in Johannesburg in 1992 — was confronted last week with allegations by Vather through his advocate, Di Franklin, that she had “fallen in love” with Vather and was “almost obsessed” by him. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
