A woman had her husband killed so she can be with her lover.
The 41-year-old woman of South Africa, has been arrested on charges of hiring hitmen to kill her husband.
The woman’s 27-year-old lover and his accomplice, 28, withdrew their applications for bail at the Mount Ayliff Magistrate’s Court, and chose to stay in jail until the trial is completed.
For now, the woman was also denied bail.
Family members of the dead husband were in court and asked the prosecutor to seek life sentences for all three suspects.
“The murderers deserve life sentences for what they did to my brother. I cannot forgive my sister-in-law for her role in the murder,” the victim’s sister said.
Residents protested before the court and are demanding justice for the deceased man.
People were angered when they saw the jailed woman chatting and laughing with her lover in court.
The 41-year-old husband was found tied up and burned near a bridge in Mount Ayliff.
Police believe that the man was abducted. His car, gun and a cell phone were missing. The car was later found near Durban, with the keys missing.
During their investigation, police uncovered that the wife paid her lover to kill her husband.
