Durban - A 21-year-old man has been convicted and sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for the murder of his ex-girlfriend in March last year.

Sholin Bisson, 21, was found guilty in the High Court in Durban last month of hitting 17-year-old Kimeera Rajbunsi with a frying pan and stabbing her six times after refusing to accept her decision to break up with him.

After the attack at Rajbunsi’s home in Phoenix, Bisson had driven to Glen Anil and dumped her body in a dam in a sugarcane field.

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane explained the circumstances of the crime, and how Bisson was arrested.

“The mother of the victim left her at home on March 3 in 2014 and went to work. On the same day when she came back in the afternoon, she noticed that her daughter was not there and nobody knew where she was.

“The gates and doors were left wide open. She further discovered a broken frying pan, broken glasses and blood stains in the house which made her suspicious that something happened to her child,” Zwane said.

“She became worried after making numerous enquiries about her disappearance and reported the matter to the Phoenix police station. The next day, the accused handed himself over to the police accompanied by his lawyer, confessing that he killed his ex-girlfriend.

"He took the police to where he dumped the body inside the dam in a sugarcane field. Her body was found with multiple injuries and the murder docket was opened. The accused was charged for murder and kidnapping and was taken to court."
