CPT High Court hands down life sentences in Cornelius murder case

During pre-sentencing proceedings last week Prosecutor Lenro Badenhorst argued for life sentences to protect society from men such as them.

Sentencing gets underway in the Western Cape High Court for the murderers of student Hannah Cornelius.

Vernon Witbooi‚ Geraldo Parsons and Eben van Niekerk each received two life sentences on Monday.

Marsh was eventually left for dead in a field and Cornelius was raped and stabbed to death.

A fourth man, Nashville Julius will effectively serve 22 years in prison for the kidnapping and robbery of Cornelius and Marsh.

Morata has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games, including a decisive brace in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace last time out.

Another suspect, known only as "Kaffertjie", is believed to have participated in the rape and murder but was not arrested.

Badenhorst submitted that all four, except for Van Niekerk, should be sentenced to 15 years for the robbery. He received 20 years for Marsh's attempted murder.

The judge found that none of the accused had shown true remorse.

Accused 1, 2 and three faced a total of 10 counts while accused number four only faced four charges. The others chose not to testify.
