South African Court Sentences 23 year Old Henri Van Breda For Killing His Parents And Older Brother


A court sitting in Western Court South Africa has sentenced 23year old Henri Van Breda, a former Perth student to three life sentences and 15years imprisonment for the murder in January 2015 of his parents and elder brother. He also got 15years for the attempted murder of his sister and 1year for obstruction of justice.

The Judge Siraj Desai described him as a "cold blooded killer".

The sentences will run concurrently.

"These attacks display a high level of innate cruelty and an almost unprecedented disregard for the welfare of one's own family, one's parents and siblings," Said Judge Siraj Desai.

"Each murderous attack upon a family member constitutes a very serious crime, warranting the severest penalty possible."

Mr. Henri Van Breda has butchered his parents and brother with an axe in January 2015.
However, he claims it wasn't him. That there was a man who came with the axe and committed the murder, a claim the judge dismissed as "nonsensical".
