Chanelle Henning’s estranged husband is now a suspect in the case, a police investigator confirmed on Tuesday.
According to the officer, a call was made from Nico Henning’s phone instructing Andre Gouws to delay the hit on the mother.
This emerged in Gouws' bail application in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
In November, Henning was killed just moments after she dropped her son off at pre-school in Faerie Glen, Pretoria.
On Tuesday, investigating officer Pieter van der Spuy testified that Gouws met with convicted killer Gerhardus du Plessis and co-accused Willem Pieterse a few days before the murder.
According to the pair, Nico made a call which was put on speaker phone.
The person on the other end of the line then instructed that the hit be postponed.
Van der Spuy said the call (duration 326 seconds) was made from Nico’s phone.
Authorities did not say if Nico will be arrested.
