PRETORIA - The state prosecution team in the Chanelle Henning murder trial intends to wrap up a plea and sentence agreement with one of the accused within the next month.
This was heard during Preshan Singh's brief appearance in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
The young mother was shot dead in 2011, moments after dropping off her son at school in Faerie Glen, eastern Pretoria.
Singh’s lawyer and state prosecutors are in the final stages of settling his plea agreement.
He confessed in his statement submitted during his bail application to supplying the revolver that Gerhardus du Plessis and Willem Pieterse used to murder Henning.
The court heard that several reports from the Department of Correctional Services are outstanding, but will be in order by the time he returns to court in July.
Singh is expected to plead guilty to a firearm related charge and receive a suspended sentence with community service.
He maintains he borrowed the firearm to du Plessis without knowing what his intentions were.
Du Plessis and Pieterse pleaded guilty to charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and the illegal possession of a firearm in December last year.
Singh's co-accused Ambrose Monye and Andre Gouws go on trial for murder in the North Gauteng High Court in November.
Monye is expected to make a bail application next week.
