GRAAFF-REINET NEWS - One of the notorious N9 murder accused, Chantelle Verwey, will apply for bail next week Tuesday.
Verwey and her co-accused, Mandla Khumalo, appeared in court on Wednesday 20 November for another postponement date, following their arrest on 14 July for the murder of Annette Jooste van Eeden.
Jooste van Eeden's body was found on 13 June, 4km outside Graaff-Reinet, next to the N9 in the direction of Middleburg, at 6.30am.
On 20 November, the court was prepared for a brief postponement appearance by Verwey and Khumalo. The case was postponed until 17 December, but before standing off Verwey loudly asked the court, "What about bail?"
State Prosecutor Drian Bakkes could not supply any reason why Verwey could not apply for bail and asked the court to postpone the application to 3 December, in order for the documentation to be prepared. The application is diarised to be completed on 17 December.
It was mentioned that Verwey's family said she could stay with them while out on bail.
Khumalo indicated that he's not going to apply for bail.
