Day two of convicted murderer Jason Rohde’s sentencing proceedings continue in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday December 6.
Rohde does not plan to take the stand to testify for a lesser sentence after being found guilty of murdering his wife Susan and staging her suicide.
In her judgment, Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe said the court inferred that Jason had struck his wife on the forehead, manually strangled her, smothered her with a pillow and then placed pressure on her chest. Rohde then devised a plan to tell the story of the deceased ending her own life. Watch.
