CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: [UPDATE] Pastor Liezel De Jager | Husband Accused of Killing Pastor Wife | Court Hears His Mental Health Struggles [#LiezelDeJager #WernerDeJager]

On Wednesday, the local magistrate’s court heard arguments for Werner de Jager’s bail application.

His pastor wife, Liezel, was discovered murdered at their house 3 years ago.

The court previously heard that Werner purchased life insurance 2 months before his wife died and then attempted to claim.

Gayle Greyling, the state prosecutor, delivered the investigating officer’s affidavit as well as a statement from Pastor Liezel’s family.

She contended that bail should not be granted since De Jager had no permanent residence, accommodation, or employment.

The court has also heard that De Jager is unable to manage his mental health and has attempted suicide on many occasions.

He has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has spent several years in mental health facilities.

According to Pastor Liezel’s family statement, this renders him incapable to care for his 2 young children.

As he began his remarks, defense counsel Andre May informed the court that his client had no premeditation, and so the premeditated murder allegation should be dropped.

He stated that the life insurance policies in question were purchased years before his wife’s death, and that any revisions to the will were the victim’s decision.

May claimed that the State’s contention that an insurance was taken out 2 months before the murder is unfounded.

The court also learned that De Jager’s mental health is well-managed and stable.
