MURDER ACCUSED CONVICTED TO 20 YEARS IMPRISONMENT
During April 2017 Table View Police reported on an arrest of a suspect in a murder case (see insert below).
The accused was handed a 20 year sentence at the Cape Town Magistrates Court recently. The accused murdered his ex-girlfriend, Candice Williams at her residence in Parklands.
The investigating officer ensured that all the evidence was properly secured and presented in court during the proceedings and opposed bail at every hearing. The accused remained in custody at Pollsmoor prison until his sentencing on 23 June 2018.
The Milnerton Cluster Commander, Major General Aneeqah Jordaan has welcomed the conviction of the accused and stated that domestic violence is a crime that is on the increase in the Milnerton Cluster. She has stated that police encouraged victims of domestic violence to come forward, before it escalates to murder. Police have constant awareness campaigns to educate our communities on the process of reporting domestic related incidents. Protection orders can be applied for at the Magistrates Court and the Police will guide the applicant on this process.
