Hockey stick killer arrested for assault
ROAD rage killer Graeme Eadie, who beat a motorist to death with a hockey stick in 1999, has again been accused of attacking a motorist.
Eadie was 35 years old when he was convicted in 2000 of murdering 54-year-old Kevin Duncan near Fish Hoek after a fit of road rage. He was released from prison in 2006.
In the latest attack, Eadie, allegedly assaulted a 67- year- old man in Plumstead on November 22.
After a “heated argument” between Eadie and the elderly man, Eadie allegedly punched him and damaged a video camera, according to police spokesman Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana.
In 2000, Eadie was sentenced to 15 years for murdering Duncan, but five years were conditionally suspended.
In April 2006, he was released on parole, which ended in September 2009, according to Correctional Services spokesman Simphiwe Xako.
Eadie’s attorney in the 2000 case, Mushtak Parker, said the suspended sentence had already fallen away.
Evidence in the 2000 case was that Eadie, who has two previous convictions for drunken driving and negligent driving, had lost his temper and killed Duncan after Duncan overtook him repeatedly.
In the latest case, Eadie appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of assault and malicious damage to property, said Kinana.
The case was postponed to December 13, he said.
