Suspect nabbed for murder


AN ARREST has been made for the murder of a 63-year-old man in Riebeek-Kasteel.

Police spokesman Warrant Officer November Filander said the suspect, 27, was arrested on Thursday for the murder of businessma­n Christophe­r Darnell.

Darnell’s body was found with an open wound to the head in his Heuwel Street home last week. Darnell had operated several self-catering cottages in the area. A community tip-off led police to the suspect, who was taken in for questionin­g, during which police were able to link him to the murder.

The suspect will appear in the Malmesbury Magistrate’s Court on Monday to face charges of murder and house robbery.
