Man out on R500 bail for the murder of baby
By Chanel September
A man from Philippi has appeared in the Bishop Lavis Court on Thursday charged with the murder of ten-month-old Leshay Muller.
In court Xolani Yako indicated that he would plead guilty and was released on R500 bail. Yako’s gun and the bullet that killed Leshay have been sent for forensic tests.
The outcome of the tests will determine if he is to be charged with murder or culpable homicide.
State prosecutor Nadeem Walters told the Cape Argus that many people witnessed the incident.
However he was granted bail and asked that the case be postponed for three months until November 17 for further investigation.
