Wife arrested for farmer's murder

2012-11-20 09:39

Bloemfontein - A Free State farmer’s wife has been arrested for his murder on their farm two years ago.

Christiaan van Wyngaard, 43, died after he was stabbed repeatedly with a knife on his farm Goedehoop in Warden, reported Beeld.

Farmworkers were first on the scene of the crime and had called the police following the attack on 26 October 2010.

At the time, Marie van Wyngaard, 57, was found with her hands tied behind her back and lying under a blanket on a sofa.

She was not seriously injured but treated for shock.

A police spokesperson said forensic evidence finally led to the Hawks arresting Van Wyngaard.

She was released on bail of R7 000 and would face murder charges next year.

    Can you please elaborate on the forensic evidence please? This is really shocking. Our farmers are already facing genocide and now they have to fear their own families as well? Money is the root of all evil!!!

      Sub judice. The SAPD will probably not release it.

      tuco.angeleyes - 2012-11-20 10:06

      Being a farmer is becoming a very risky business

      beverly.young3 - 2012-11-20 10:07

      The love of money @ Michael....who was it that said, "look to the family members first?" Shocking no matter who was to blame, a man died. RIP

    she must of had her reasons, But she is stupid for doing that because she could of just divorced the guy.

      Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-11-20 10:29

      And your grammar teacher could 'of' done better.

      JManAtheoi - 2012-11-20 10:54

      Your comments are getting better every time... keep practicing.

      sandra.j.rennie - 2012-11-20 10:57

      She wouldn't divorce him - no ways - he must have had life cover ! Stupid woman. The Detectives do always look at the family first.

      ulandi.potgieter - 2012-11-20 11:06

      @ yes that's true they always look at the family and that's also true he must of had life insurance.

      disillusioned.sa - 2012-11-20 15:34

      Divorce is an option, unless you live in Port Elizabeth. The best place in the country to get rid of your husband and walk away. So all you PE okes, treat your wife nice....

  • rohin.jadin - 2012-11-20 09:48

    that puts farm murders in a new light. We've become so used to farm murders being as a result of political influences we forget that there could be something else behind it. I'm sure this comes as a big shock to the family, but I'm glad she's been caught. Hopefully farm murders will be investigated more carefully in the future and not just written off as "just another" farm attack.

      Well said

  • abner.malema - 2012-11-20 09:59

    Everytime a farmer is killed commetators says that a black man did it. OR the ANC, now they are quite. no apologies

      sndashe - 2012-11-20 10:35

      @sean Wolf, i would like to disagree that you are the one who has a half un developed brain. you like to assume, where you there when the farmers where killed, why do you always like to assume that it was black people always. because of the s**** brain you have you assume that black people are salvages, that black people dont want a better country , for all, cause you assume all black people are Anti white. white people for your own information are also killers, murderers, corrupt, evil, good, kind, want a better country for all just like us BLACK PEOPLE. so stop judging and thinking that cause you are a white man you are better, you are right, and you know everything. as much as you want to think of your white feelings, know that BLACK people also have feeling. a black killer doesnt equate to all black people, a corrupt black person doesnt equate to all black people, a black racist doesnt equate to all black people. check your self before you judge. i wont apologies for my skin colour but i wont tollerate people like you who judge me and my skin for what black people are doing, im not them i am a proud black man im a proud black south african. and no this is not directed to white people but this A*** called you sean wolf.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-20 10:53

      sndashe - please do not pretend to be a reasonable and stable person. I see right through you. You are brainwashed, a complete racist and you have clearly made your point. Do not back pedal.

      arm.witmens - 2012-11-20 11:33

      @sndashe - its "SAVAGES" - your species are beyond salvage im afraid.

      sandile.memela1 - 2012-11-20 12:13

      @Proudly(ME) A hOLE. Your racist views mean little unfortunately. ThANKFULLY your kindly are slowly being terminated in SA. Go choke a smurf fool

  • zelda.dickson - 2012-11-20 10:04

    How did she manage to get tied up. Must be an accomplace.

      Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-11-20 10:21

      It was obviously the classic Shrien Dewani move. Like Shrien, this woman organised men and asked them to make it seem like a farm robbery (highjacking in Shrien's case). So that's why they tied her up and then left her unharmed.

  • heinrich.rall - 2012-11-20 10:17

    Really.....R7000 bail for murder charge......really?

  • Khutso Rele Mokgosi - 2012-11-20 10:21

    every time there was a report on a farm murder it was all blamed on the ANC and how its all politically motivated. so whites what are you saying now? or perhaps the wife was secretly a member of the anc *rolling eyes*. this is the 2nd of many other wake up calls. the person you should be fearing is not the black man walking on the street but the one you sleeping next to. . .

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-20 10:30

      How idiotic can you be. So one murder, one murder, where it happens to turn that the wife did it, and this in your tiny mind somehow excuses the hundreds of Black on White farm murders of the past. Roll your eyes as much as you want.

      Khutso Rele Mokgosi - 2012-11-20 10:44

      plumb ignorance wont help you in any way. if i count the number of black people murdered in the past by whites it wouldn't even come close to the number of white ppl killed by blacks. and i say this because you mentioned the word PAST! you whites need to get your faces out of your behinds seriously. crime specifically murder affects all of us. black, white, indian coloured, pink, blue you name it. and the motive behind farm killings remains a mystery until the law has taken course. so stop being such hypocrites. blaming the anc or any other political movement for farm murders makes you no better than a black man blaming apartheid for his failures. truth hurts doesn't it?

      Khutso Rele Mokgosi - 2012-11-20 10:49

      @michael thank you for acknowledging that you were born without brains. and thank you for forgiving me for being able to think with my brain and not with my skin colour

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-20 10:59

      No ignorance Sir. You and others are making out as if there was some kind of White on Black genocide that took place in SA. Well, when was this? Don't say during apartheid either, because I lived through that and there was no genocide of any sort. So what are you referring to when you talk about all these terrible White on Black murders. There was never such an event. You Sir are the ignorant one here because you've been sold a load of BS, and you've believed it.

      michael.horton.566790 - 2012-11-20 11:01

      "if i count the number of black people murdered in the past by whites it wouldn't even come close to the number of white ppl killed by blacks.: SERIOUSLY???? In the past few years of this so called democracy, there were more racially motivated killing on white people (some 40 000) compared to the 4000 black people killed during the whole of apartheid! (More than 40 YEARS wena!!) Most blacks have a deep hatred towards whites because of what our stupid forefathers did. I was a child when apartheid ended so I never knew what it was and never supported it either. YET I suffer from it!

      patrick.mampane - 2012-11-20 11:15

      SHE is a madam 'Big Chief' . I understand why you are confused. And tell me have you had of the CCB, Vlakplaass etc? that's where your answers are to be found. Grab yourself a book titled Warfare by other means ( Peter Stiff). There is a particular monster there named Johan Theron, by his own account he dumped hundreds of men from their aircraft, a Piper Senaca over the Atlantic Ocean. He was just a drop in the ocean.

      patrick.mampane - 2012-11-20 11:17

      hear,I meant.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-11-20 11:45

      patrick. you do not have to refer me to any books. I can't divulge my life history, but I am well aware of all such places and 'units', and although never directly involved, trust me I know much more about these and other things than you do. Apartheid was bad, but even worse, a degree of evil crept into that whole era as well, and yes, there were some atrocities. But Patrick, if you and others are going to try and make white people believe we were responsible for some kind of mass murdering of Black people, you are demented. There was never any such event in SA, and I can testify to this. This is pure propaganda, based on a small core of truth, but for the most stretched and exaggerated beyond all proportion.

      arm.witmens - 2012-11-20 11:47

      @patric - i quote : "Johan Theron, by his own account he dumped hundreds of men from their aircraft, a Piper Senaca over the Atlantic Ocean. He was just a drop in the ocean" - Actually, THEY were dropped INTO the ocean.He was doing the dropping.

      patrick.mampane - 2012-11-20 12:02

      Re read my comment 'PROUDLY ME'. Johan Theron dropped all those people..... He was just a drop in the ocean - meaning there were many others who killed like him. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

      I agree, and hell you can find them here a dime a dozen.

      Oh we know exactly how they feel about us, it's very obvious, all noted, and yes, they are probably planning ........ This is the democratic SA.

    What saddens me is the debate that always follow here. "We demand" means I demand and think I have been chosen as spokesperson for the rest of the people with my skin colour. Hypocritcal indignation about the skin colour of a murderer but total silence when chosen officials lie and cheat. I agree, we are so used to blacks doing the killing we automatically assume they are guilty all the time. But in essence we are doing exactly what the black indignant loud shouters here are doing, they see most whites as being racist and we see most of them as criminals. So at the end of the day, colour aside, what is the difference between us?

    He is 43 and she is 57? What a wicked woman - wonder what happened - no doubt greed! She will find what an idiot she is now that she is caught... So now we need to be told who helped her - unless she is double jointed and tied her own hands behind her back? So sorry about the farmer - and here am I plannng to get a younger man? No ways - single and alive!

  • solly.shaba - 2012-11-20 13:26

    I mean really now! I am tired of all of you who are deviating from the matter of interest. Our fellow people are being killed by both those who have been invited and uninvited in their own lives, and yet you seem not to be worried but rather taliking the way you like. Ja is true that if you are not the one faced with such a predicament, you don't really care. Come on south africans where is humanity? Murder is murder, and we all know that most of the time is motivated by money. So lets leave the issue of race out of this matter please I am begging YOU! I if we were really worried about making this country a success, we wouldnt be using these sites to express our views which are most of the time not of paramount importance. As their full of hatred amongs ourselves, constantly reminding each other of the past and the present. I JUST LEARNED THAT MOST US ARE HYPOCRITES, PERHAPS I AM ALSO ONE THEM. MOREOVER I LEARNED THROUGH GOD EVEYTHING IS POSSIBLE, IF WE ARE WILLING TO WORK TOGETHER AS PEOPLE AND NOT AS BLACK AND WHITE, I SUPPOSE IS HIGH TIME WE RESORT TO GOD AS HE WILL TEACH US ALL HES GOOD WAYS AND CERTAINLY THE LOVE OF CORINTHIANS 13. THEREFORE, IT WILL CERTAINLY BE LEFT FOR US AS AN EXERCISE TO IMPART THE VERY SAME KNOWLEDGE TO OUR CHILDREN WHO ARE THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY. SOUTH-AFRICAN YOU ARE BLESS BUT YOU CAN'TSEE THAT!

    Would like to know who tied her hands behind her back and covered her with a blanket. Idon't think she was alone in this matter. I think it is a bit impossible to tie your own hands behind your back with tape. The poor man. As it is the farmers are fearing there lives at a daily basis now they must watch out for the people they trust and love. What makes a woman so angry at her husband to kill him. Rather walk away from a failed marriage than to take someones life.
