Double life for traffic cop killer
Quinton Cordom was found guilty of killing traffic officer Wesley Woodman last year.
CAPE TOWN - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has hailed the double life sentence handed down to a self-confessed gangster, who was convicted of the murder of a Cape Town traffic officer.
Quinton Cordom (26) was found guilty on 10 charges, including that of murder and the possession of firearms and ammunition without a valid licence.
He was sentenced in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.
The NPA's Nathi Mncube has welcomed the sentence, "We are trying as best we can to deal with the scourge of gangsterism, where people think they can go around killing people with impunity. We hope this is going to serve as a very clear message and also serve as a deterrent to potential offenders."
