Hawks officer implicated in double murder expected in court
The man has been implicated in the murders of two men who were romantically involved with his ex-wife.
JOHANNESBURG - A Hawks officer will be appearing in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court later this month in connection with the murders of two men who were romantically involved with his ex-wife.
The 35-year-old man allegedly shot and killed the men following an argument with his former spouse in Thokoza on the East Rand.
He then handed himself over to authorities.
He is currently being investigated by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid).
Ipid spokesman Robbie Raburabu says, "He appeared in court on 25 April and the matter has since been remanded to 9 May for mental observation."
