Preparation went into Henning's murder
Channelle Henning's killer Willem Pieterse confessed that weeks of preparation went into her murder.
PRETORIA - Chanelle Henning's killer has testified about weeks of preparation and meetings leading up to the young mother's murder.
This emerged on Tuesday in the North Gauteng High Court during the trial of Ambrose Monye and Andre Gouws.
A lust for drugs and alcohol drew Willem Pieterse and Gerhardus du Plessis together, but it was a cash promise that led them to perform the crime.
The court heard the pair were promised R10,000 each from their drug dealer Ambrose Monye and this led them to murder Channelle Henning.
Pieterse testified of how he and Du Plessis met with Monye and Gouws to get details of Henning’s movements.
Monye’s lawyer said his client will deny any involvement in the plotting of Henning’s murder.
Meanwhile, Gouws’s advocate is to cross examine Pieterse on Wednesday.
Henning was shot dead moments after dropping off her son at school in faerie glen last November.
