Murder accused Rob Packham, from Constantia, has been re-arrested this evening (Thursday 20 September) following a court warrant.

He arrived at Diep River Police  Station in an unmarked police vehicle. It is believed he will be detained at the station for the night.

Packham was arrested in February on charges of murder and defeating the ends of justice after the burnt body of his wife, Gill Packham, was found.

This latest arrest comes a month before his pre-trial conference, set to take place at the Cape Town High Court on Friday 26 October. His trial is expected to start in February next year.

This is a developing story.
