CAPE TOWN - The family of Johannes Kana, the man convicted for the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen, says it's planning to head to the Constitutional Court.

Kana received a double life sentence last year for the crime.

His family has now hired a private investigator to re-visit the case and to try and prove his innocence.

Kana's family is confident a different court will find him innocent.

His uncle Pieter Kana claims their private investigator has found new evidence which will prove his innocence.

"The investigation is really far as we have the conclusion now and we know he's not guilty."

Kana's previous effort to appeal his conviction has been unsuccessful.
