Cape Town - Convicted killer Thandi Maqubela showed delusional tendencies and lacked empathy, the Western Cape High Court found on Tuesday.

"She displayed contradictory behavioural traits and tendencies," Judge John Murphy said.

"The evidence shows beyond all doubt, her proclivity towards deception, fraudulent conduct, and an almost delusional tendency to fabricate, aimed unrealistically at self-preservation and advancement."
