The man who killed his wife has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment. Jason Rohde was convicted for murdering Susan Rohde at the Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch in July 2016. The man was charged with premeditated murder last year.
The imprisonment term was divided into two parts. Thus, Jason Rohde got 18 years for murder and five years for defeating the ends of justice. According to the court decision, three years of the second term will unite with the murder charge term.
As the defense’s Advocate Graham van der Spuy points out, they are going to appeal the sentence.
