VRYHEID Murder case detectives made an astounding breakthrough on two brutal killing cases this month.
In the first case Pele Ndlanzi (32) was sentenced to 18 years behind bars at the Vryheid Magistrates court on Friday, May 15 after being found guilty of killing his ex-girlfriend Ntombizodwa Nkosi.
According to a report Ndlanzi and Ntombizodwa were out drinking at a shebeen in Bhekuzulu when an argument broke out between the pair.
It is alleged that Ndlanzi became violent and Ntombizodwa fled.
Ndlanzi gave chase and after catching up with her proceeded to stab her in the left breast.
Ntombizodwa died on scene.
A case of murder was opened and Ndlanzi was taken into custody where it was discovered that the deceased had filed a protection order against him.
In another case, the detectives managed to nail down a criminal who brutally killed a man by smashing his head with a hammer.
Patrick Mabaso(25) was given a life sentence and 15 more years for the murder of Makhosonke Mthimkhulu(35).
In June 2013, Mabaso was arrested after he bashed Mthimkhulu’s head in with a hammer.
Mabaso then used a knife to cut his victim’s head off before dragging the body and dumping it at the bypass road near Lakeside.
The motives behind the brutal murder are still unknown.
Mabaso is said to have broken down on a particular day during his hearing and asked Mthimkhulu’s family for forgiveness although he still pleaded not guilty throughout until he was sentenced.
