Cape Town – The woman accused of putting a hit out on her husband is expected back in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Petina Coetzee, 44, was arrested in a police sting operation at the Lansdowne railway station in October 2016, after she allegedly tried to arrange the murder of her husband, Austin Coetzee, 67.
