Jevon Snyman has been sentenced to a long prison term following the murder of Glenrico Martin in 2013.

Martin, 18 at the time of his death, was shot in view of fellow pupils at Spes Bona High School by Wilston Stoffels.

Stoffels was sentenced to an effective 24 years in prison after entering into a plea agreement.

It is understood that Stoffels belonged to the Americans gang.

Meanwhile, Snyman went on trial this year and was found guilty on three counts in August.

He was handed three-year and five-year sentences respectively for the illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

He was also given a 25-year sentence for his role in Martin’s murder.

Athlone police spokesperson Sergeant Zita Norman has paid tribute to those who played a role in ensuring that the two murderers received justice.

“Athlone police commend Lieutenant Leon Magalies for his hard work and the community for their tip-offs and information provided,” Norman says.

“With the continuous assistance of the community, we as the police can bring many perpetrators to book and bring justice to those hurting families who are left behind.”
