Murdered Alberton mother and son: Duo set to apply for bail

Pardon Danhire (37) and Freddie Stapelberg (34) are the accused in the double murder case of Nadine Terblanche and her son Ruandré.

A joint court date has been set in the double murder case of Nadine Terblanche and her son Ruandré.

The gruesome discovery of the bodies of Nadine and Ruandré at their Randhart home sent shockwaves through Alberton and the country.

Initially, the family’s gardener Pardon Danhire (37) was arrested, and later on, Freddie Stapelberg (34), who was said to be engaged to Terblanche, found himself at the centre of the investigation.

He was arrested and made his first appearance in the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court on January 15. His case was postponed to February 7.

Meanwhile, Danhire made another appearance in the same court on Wednesday.

The case was adjourned to February 7, where Danhire, alongside co-accused Stapelberg, is scheduled to apply for bail. It will be the first time the duo appear in court together.

Danhire and Stapelberg are confronted with premeditated murder charges in connection with the tragic events that unfolded last November.

Danhire is detained in Boksburg, while Stapelberg is at Johannesburg Prison.

Showing their support for the family, supporters again came together at the court.
