11 year old Okahandja murder suspect appears


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

The court this week attended a murder case involving a 14 year old suspect from Okahandja.
The boy, who was 11 years old when he committed the alleged murder was released into his parents’ custody.
He has since been taken for juvenile screening so the court can decide if he is fit for trial.
On 6 March 2008, the incident resulting in the death of Theofelus Nikanor happened at erf no. 325 in Nau-Aib, in Okahandja.
Nikanor allegedly died from head injuries inflicted by the boy with a cane.
While appearing in the Regional Court in September 2008, the boy pleaded not guilty to the charge of intentionally and wrongfully killing Nikanor.
Court documents do not explain what led to the attack. The boy, who is still attending school in Okahandja, was told to return to court on 1 December 2011 for continuation of his case.
