Satanic ritual trial postponed

2012-11-09 13:03

Johannesburg - The trial of three men and a girl accused of killing a teenager in an apparent satanic ritual has been postponed to 15 April by the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg, Eyewitness News reported on Friday.

Lindon Wagner, 21, Robin Harwood, 18, and Harvey Isha, 23, have been in custody since being denied bail in November last year.

A 15-year-old girl, who was also implicated in the killing, remains in the custody of her parents.

In October last year, Kirsty Theologo, 18, was doused with petrol and set alight on a hill behind the Linmeyer swimming pool in Julius Street, southern Johannesburg. She died a week later in Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Lester Moody and Jeremy King, both 18, entered into a plea deal with the State and, on 29 March, they were each sentenced to 17 years' imprisonment, five years of which was suspended.
They are expected to testify against the other accused.

      Our constitution does not allow it. A lengthy sentence will do.

      Children need: 1) role model parents and friends 2) love, spiritual and self-awareness 3) discipline and routine 4) physical and mental stimulation/development 5) military school, when they get completely out of hand. We have too many slack, irresponsible, immoral, useless parents in this world.

    Something is gone terribly wrong with them. How can one do this to another human. Let them rot in jail.

    so few comments on this post, not like the one with the man who was found with genitals in his pockets. i have noticed this quite a few times here on News24...........am not saying anything,it's obvious what the issue is here. mxm.

      Yar, no-one cares, its as if such violence is acceptable to the SA public, we have been desensitized, usually corruption angers more here than such sick stories as this one, I think that these individuals should be necklaced in public as an example.

      warren.rodel - 2012-11-09 14:56

      Being "Friday" arvo may effect the amount of comments as well.

  • petr.valcik1 - 2012-11-09 14:23

    What the hell were those idiots trying to gain from this? I hope that they spend the rest of their lives living with a vaseline jar next to their state allocated bed. Although - I personally think that they don't even deserve to live.

  • jody.beggs - 2012-11-09 14:26

    Easy to blame the kids , why no society that created them ? All religious idjits need to re-think why they need faith instead off facts ....

      warren.rodel - 2012-11-09 15:09

      Yes, youth-anise them and their families.

  • mari.theologo - 2012-11-09 14:58

    Why turned this into a race issue some of these kids were her friends the family is suffering enough find something else to turn into hate speech it is not about black white or colored its about a young girl losing her life in a most horrible way!!

      warren.rodel - 2012-11-09 15:10

      the word Racist is the new F*@k word, so who give a flying Racist?

      tony.leeson.18 - 2012-11-09 15:14

      Absolutely correct. Race has nothing to do with this tragedy. A lovely young girl lost her life and five other young people ruined theirs. The trauma for all the families is beyond imagination and we should sympathise with the parents in their grief.

  • BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-09 15:01

    To the gallows. As for the Black racist comments, as I said before, the new defence / justification for the horrendous amount of violent crime committed by Blacks is to highlight the odd crime committed by Whites. How pathetic that you feel you need to 'point it out' as some kind of justification. "look, we're all OK, Whites also commit crimes". Juvenile,child like, and simply so pathetic. Unfortunately it will never explain away the outrageous amount of crimes committed by Blacks. Oh and the race ratios - don't even go there, it still doesn't tally up.

      patrick.mampane - 2012-11-09 15:58

      So you have a problem with 'black racists' 'pointing out' that comments are curiously fewer in certain instances? That this page was not particularly quite yesterday when a story broke about genitalia in a wallet? that curiously this page went silent when matters were being reported about the cemetery murder and mutilation case? It will be interesting to know who you are quoting by the words " look, we are all ok, whites also commit crimes" . Seeing that only a dozen or so comments materialized in this story, I bet it will not be difficult for you to point out that particular comment for our benefit. Perhaps you could also assist us with reasons as to why this horrific event has attracted such little debate in.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-09 16:16

      Yawn. Next idiot.

      patrick.mampane - 2012-11-09 16:47

      Very clever comment. Well done.

      themba.thwala.775 - 2012-11-09 18:25

      BighiefIdiot, blacks are the majority, their crimes statistics will reflect that. White are a minority, their crime statistics will also reflect that. Now move on Chief of the Idiots. Your argument that whites commit less crime is tiring. When are you going to see crime as crime and remove the colour of the perpetrator? I hope you have not bred and passed on your stupidity to little innocent souls
