Henning murder case back in court

2014-11-13 05:55

Johannesburg - Murder accused Nico Henning is expected back in the Pretoria District Court on Thursday.

He appeared briefly in the court on 3 June when the matter was postponed for the completion of further investigations.

Henning is to face trial for the murder of his estranged wife, Chanelle Henning.

The 26-year-old was shot dead shortly after dropping off their child at a crèche in Faerie Glen, Pretoria, in November 2011.

Nico Henning's friend, Andre Gouws, 49, and Nigerian former athlete Ambrose Monye have both been sentenced to life in prison.

Two other men, Gerhardus "Doepie" du Plessis and Willem "Pike" Pieterse, are serving 18-year prison terms after confessing to their roles in the killing.

    If people could only realise what their future holds, they wouldn't make certain decisions that they would later regret.

      Yawn - Anyone with 10 million spare cash to pay that much bail money shouldn't really have a problem getting over any little hurdle posed by a South African state department.

      Sejouse Freedom - 2014-11-13 10:43

      He has not paid it yet.

      C'est moi - 2014-11-13 12:47

      In January he paid R 300,000 cash, for the other R 9,700,000 he gave sureties on his properties.

    Everybody involved in this case has been sentenced and put away except the husband. How lame is that?

      Lwandile Mabusela - 2014-11-13 07:13

      They confessed after they were sentenced if I'm not mistaken

  • Mulomo Wa Ndau - 2014-11-13 06:53

    Looking unto the Dewani"s case, and hearing that he is moneyed, I bet my ass, he will walk

  • Johnson Marx - 2014-11-13 07:08

    henning is a rich fat cat lawyer that would make dewani and oscar look micky mouse

  • Janine Hughes - 2014-11-13 07:08

    I agree Annize. Same with De Vanie case who pleaded insannity. Do they really think they can get away with it.......then again money talks.

  • Donovan Rix - 2014-11-13 07:16

    Henning I hope you never see day light again .to that little girl hope you stay strong

      carmen.tatumm - 2014-11-13 10:29

      U mean boy. He had a son with his estranged wife

  • Dawid Venter - 2014-11-13 07:18

    Hang this murderous sick jealous bastard. He thought money can buy him anything he wants. Make and example of him. I will push the button for his execution.

  • JP Wallace - 2014-11-13 07:22

    Give him a big jar of vaseline as a go away present..... he will become everyone's B...h in jail.

      Christiaan van Dyk - 2014-11-13 07:54

      Why do people take sick joy in the hope or expectation that someone should get raped in prison as some form of additional and somehow completely justified punishment?

      Neville Watson - 2014-11-13 09:46

      I agree Christiaan. Funny till it happens ot one of them.

      Josie de Villiers - 2014-11-13 17:43

      And yet the knowledge of that terrible possibility in jail still does not deter these people from committing murder, rape etc.

  • Nadiaa Moosa - 2014-11-13 07:26

    If my memory serves me correct, Gerrie Nel is the prosecutor in this case.

      Josie de Villiers - 2014-11-13 17:31

      Yes he is the Prosecutor. We can hope to see another piece of trash killer behind bars!

  • Martin Engelke - 2014-11-13 07:34

    A man as intelligent as he is, should have known the later consequences of marrying a young little gold-digging blonde beforehand. He only has himself to blame.

      Lydia Pelser - 2014-11-13 09:01

      I see Martin Engelke comes from Boksburg.

  • Michael Kleber - 2014-11-13 07:36

    from the time his friends were arrested for murdering his ex wife i knew he was involved , it just did not add up and it was just a matter of time until the truth came out .

  • Sulette Behnke - 2014-11-13 07:37

    can they lock up this guy already? it's been clear from day 1 that he would rather have his wife dead before she left him. how long does it take to prove he is the mastermind ?

  • Martin Engelke - 2014-11-13 08:01

    A word of warning to all those hussies out there who withhold children from their fathers yet sue him for support- sooner or later one will crack.

      Herman Schroder - 2014-11-13 09:48

      Martin, Sounds like that brain of yours cracked a long time ago. Respect for the dead, dude.

  • Schalk van Schalkwyk - 2014-11-13 08:09

    Please tell me you don't have either of the qualifications you so advertise.... with the "imigation" service on the loose, nobody in South Africa will be interseted, but thanks..... for nothing! Please go back to Nigeria and ask Boko Haram or TB Joshua to fund you

  • Raymond Kok - 2014-11-13 08:17

    nail his a..s to the wall

  • Chris Abrahamse - 2014-11-13 09:07


      Raymond Kok - 2014-11-13 10:52

      His greed was the motive

  • Herman Schroder - 2014-11-13 09:42

    Where is the bunny hugging, bleeding hearts club for this one. Schulla, Ashika, Jane Mead, Pietsa et al ? I think this guy is going to need more help than OP, so come on guys let the games begin.

  • lionel.kritzinger - 2014-11-13 09:55

    Another bastard to be put a way for ever..

  • Lancashire lass - 2014-11-13 10:12

    It is very sad that someone who once loved someone else, be married to them and have a child, would then plot to kill the very one they loved. It is all about control, and people like this man, and Shrien Dewani, and Oscar Pistorious, who cannot make someone do as they want, who are used to having money and are utterly self-absorbed cannot cope with rejection.

  • Anke Prinsloo - 2014-11-13 10:35

    He has more money than Oscar and an ancle, the worst that will happen: 6months house arrest

  • Ruth Clemente Marais - 2014-11-13 10:43

    He must pay for what he did. Not money.......JAIL!

  • Ria Cook - 2014-11-13 11:14

    Lot of similarities with the Shrien Dewani case. The hired hands are in prison, while the alleged mastermind is still free THREE YEARS LATER!
