During earlier appearances, the court heard that two of the accused would be signing a plea bargain.

In court this morning, it was made known that mother and son, Marinda and Leroux, will be signing plea bargain deals. The court has heard a request for their trial to be separated from the rest. The request was granted, resulting in the matter being postponed to 8 October for Cecelia and Marcel Steyn, and Zak Valentine.

Leroux Steyn signed a plea bargain deal and was subsequently sentenced.

Le Roux Steyn has accepted a plea agreement and has been sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment. He left the courtroom in tears.
