Another of the accused in the Chanelle Henning murder case entered into a plea and sentence agreement with the state on Thursday.
This emerged during the court appearance of Andre Gouws, Ambrose Monye and Preshan Singh in Pretoria.
Henning was shot dead in 2011, shortly after dropping her son off at school in Faerie Glen, east of Pretoria.
Magistrate Maryke de la Rey postponed the matter against Singh to allow his lawyers and the state to finalise the plea deal.
Like his co-accused he is also charged with conspiracy to murder.
He might plead guilty to a lesser firearms related charge and will then receive a suspended sentence.
In his bail application he admitted that he loaned his unlicenced firearm to the killer, Willem Pieterse, but said he did not know what it was used for.
Monye also decided to apply for bail on Thursday.
Three days at the end of April were set down for that hearing.
All the accused including Gouws return to court on the 3 May.
Chanelle was caught up in a battle with her ex-husband Nico for custody of their son.
She was killed two days before the custody hearing was due to start in the High Court.
