The case of a Gauteng man who claimed that he killed his wife after he mistook her for an intruder, has been transferred to the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg. 

His murder trial will be heard there on 27 August.

This comes after Mosa Ntsimande made a brief appearance in the Kempton Park Regional Court on Tuesday morning.

He is accused of murdering his wife, Hlengiwe Msimango, 29, at their Norkem Park home on 3 August last year, News24 previously reported. He allegedly used his licensed firearm.

Msimango sustained two bullet wounds to her upper body and died on the scene. Her body was found inside their home. 

Ntsimande claimed he was awoken by people in his yard and, armed with his gun, went outside to check. As he returned to the house, he saw a shadow in their bedroom and shot at it twice, hitting Msimango. 

Ntsimande is out on bail.
