Panayiotou and his co-accused to appear in the Port Elizabeth High Court for a pre-trial hearing.
25 August 2016
Murder suspect Christopher Panayiotou and his co-accused, Sizwezakhe Vumazonke and Sinethemba Nenembe, are expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth High Court for a pre-trial hearing.
Panayiotou is said to be the alleged mastermind behind his wife Jayde's killing last year in April. He has since had his bail application dismissed twice.
Last month a fourth suspect, Zolani Sibeko, was also arrested in connection with the murder. Last month Zolani Sibeko was formally charged for conspiracy to commit murder, murder and abduction after police said they had linked him to the co-accused.
Police claim that through their investigations including cell phone plotting, they placed Sibeko with Vumazonke and Nenembe on the day that they allegedly scouted Jayde's route to her school. Panayiotou has been incarcerated for more than a year.
Panayiotou is expected to sit in the docks with his co-accused in a pre-trail hearing. The official trial date has been set for October 3.
