Convicted murderer, Jason Rohde will be sentenced next Wednesday in the High Court in…

Convicted murderer, Jason Rohde will be sentenced next Wednesday in the High Court in Cape Town. Both the defence and the state wrapped up their closing arguments today. Fifty-year-old Rohde was convicted last year of the 2016 murder of his wife Susan, as well as defeating the ends of justice. The court found that he had tried to stage her death in their Spier Hotel room as a suicide. The state is calling for a sentence exceeding the minimum sentence of 15 years on the murder charge. Advocate Louis van Niekerk for the state, argued that Rohde deceived his wife into thinking that he wants to save their marriage while living a double life: “The accused acted callous and uncaring towards her, very cruel, totally disregarding her as a person, as a wife, as a mother of her daughters. He was ruthless and basically cold blooded, brutally murdering her without any conscious to the devastating effects.”
