Two men accused of murdering Afrikaans author Winnie Rust are set to go on trial in the Western Cape High Court in October.
Nigel Plaatjies and his uncle Johannes Plaatjies were expected back in the Wellington Magistrate’s Court on Monday for the murder of Winnie Rust.
The co-accused in the murder of author Winnie Rust has told the Wellington Magistrate's Court he would never have hurt his benefactor as she was good to him.
Winnie Rust murder accused Nigel Plaatjies has been moved to a single cell at the Allandale Prison and has not been injured in any way, a correctional services official says.
The trial of two men accused of robbing and killing Afrikaans author Winnie Rust is expected to resume in the Western Cape High Court.
An initial police statement accredited to murder accused Nigel Plaatjies was a story compiled by the authorities without him knowing what it contained, he has told the court.
Murder accused Nigel Plaatjies has testified that he was forced to take part in a robbery at the home of Wellington author Winnie Rust, and was in fear for his life and the safety of his family.
Tearful Wellington residents have shown their support as murder accused Nigel Plaatjies, 18, made his way out of court into a police vehicle.
