Power bill slay­ing: 4 in court

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

A 34-YEAR-OLD man ap­peared briefly in the Rood­e­poort Mag­is­trate’s Court yes­ter­day for al­legedly gun­ning down his ten­ant after an ar­gu­ment over an elec­tric­ity bill. Along with his wife San­dra Khosi Mabizela, Nku­l­uleko Nkosi faces charges of ag­gra­vated as­sault and mur­der. Ap­pear­ing with them was Manelisi Mthembu and Abra­ham Nkosi­nathi Nkosi. The charges arose from the death of Sierra Leonean Sahr Thomas Fil­lie, who was al­legedly slapped, punched, kicked, bit­ten on a fin­ger and shot in the ab­domen after a row over an elec­tric­ity bill. The case was post­poned for out­stand­ing bal­lis­tics and DNA test re­sults. – Omphitlhetse Mooki
