Thandi Maqubela has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, forgery and fraud in the Western Cape High Court.

The widow of the late Western Cape High Court judge Patrick Maqubela has been accused of suffocating her husband in their Bantry Bay home in June, 2009.

The case has been moved upcountry as judges in the Western Cape were reluctant to hear the case. The trial continues.

Maqubela’s co-accused Vela Mabena also pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder.

She is accused of forging her husband’s will by attaching a signature to it which purported to be that of Patrick Maqubela, but in fact was not.
