Cape Town - A man was sentenced to 30 years in jail by the Western Cape High Court for the sexual assault and murder of a woman in Grabouw, the National Prosecuting Authority said on Monday.

Ian October, 44, admitted in a plea and sentencing agreement on Monday morning that he raped and killed Eunice Elizabeth Steyn, 41, on 6 January this year, Western Cape NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said.

October hit Steyn with a wooden pole on the farm Molteno. He then hit her head against a wall and raped her.

He admitted that she died from injuries caused by him sticking a pole up her vagina and anus.

He was sentenced to 30 years for the murder, a year for the assault and 15 years each for the different rapes.

The sentences would run concurrently.

    and the anc defend not using the death penalty

      i seriously doubt that the DA or ant other party would advocate the death penalty! If he spends half his sentence in jail, stats is that he would have died in jail by the end of 15yrs either aids or by voilent assault! I would personal donate round shaped soap to him, so that he repeatedly drop it in the prison shower, the low down dirty swine! Hopefully someone smuggles in a treaded iron rod that his inmates can use to shove it up his plumbing!!!!

    The saddest part is that he lives to tell the story and loaf on our hard earned taxes!

    30 years.....There is no rehabilitation in this world for someone that could do that to another human been ! The only punishment that would be fair is to sentence a murderer to die in the exact same way he kills.

    Rape!!! Why? when in every town you can buy the services of a willing participant! The gruesome and cold blooded actions of this demented sick twisted swine prooves that he doest belong in any society! Give him hard labour and lock him up with sex offenders with plenty of round shaped soap that he drops repeaedly in the prison shower! Let him feels the indignity of rape in prison by his peers, i hope you get it forcefully daily and regular so that you never foget what you put your victim through! You sorry excuse of the male species!!!!

  • Byron Scott - 2012-11-06 08:09

    This savage should be tied up in the street and the family of this woman should be allowed to take turns raping him with a splintered pole! then he must be left for the public to have their way with him!

    They should have given this bustard two ultimatums. ''We hang you'' or ''Amputate his balls plus 30yrs in jail with a jar of vaseline everyday for free''

    Oh my goodness I'm sick to my stomach!! What the hell is wrong with this man??? 30 years is too little, he should have gotten a life sentence!! Such sick, twisted, demented people need to be put away for good or put down, he should never ever have contact with society. That poor poor woman, I can't even begin to imagine the pain and horror she went through in the last moments of her life
