Student: I killed teen over jealousy, love

2012-08-15 08:45

Johannesburg - A North West University student has appeared in the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court in connection with the murder and sexual assault of a 14-year-old boy, according to a report on Wednesday.

Beeld reported that Danté Chan was found murdered at the 20-year-old student's home on July 31. He had been stabbed 36 times and there was a steak knife protruding from his left shoulder.

According to the newspaper, the student's father had been in a five-year relationship with Chan's mother.

Investigating officer Johannes Booysens told the court he took the student, who may not be named until he has pleaded, to a doctor for DNA and blood testing a few days after the murder.

"He told me then that he had murdered Chan because he was jealous of him," Booysens said.

Surveillance camera footage obtained from a local Pick n Pay the day before the murder reportedly showed the student purchasing a knife.

Advocate Ben Botes, for the student, told Beeld his client intended pleading not guilty. The 20-year-old was denied bail and remained in custody.

    When God(The great I AM)comes, the bible says that even the boldest and the strongest man will shiver, so dear beloved people no need for comments, no king of queen or black or white men, will bring solution to this filty world. Repent and focus on the cross rather!

    Reporters: so it took you so long to report the fact that the student has a sexual interest? This is still the 'Obsessed' student you were at pains to indicate the nature of obsession.
