Christopher Panayiotou and co-accused Sinethemba Nenemba have been sentenced to life imprisonment in the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth for the murder of his wife Jayde.

Jayde's family let out cheers of joy and relief as Judge Dayalin Chetty handed down the ruling in the Port Elizabeth High Court on Friday.

Chetty said the packed gallery showed the empathy for the Inggs family (Jayde's family) and due consideration needed to be given to their pain.

He added that Jayde had been blissfully unaware that the man she shared a bed with had set in motion plans to have her killed.
