CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: [UPDATE] Pastor Liezel De Jager | Husband Accused of Killing Pastor Wife | Husband, Werner de Jager ‘Danger to Society’: State | Will Remain in Custody till Feb. 22 [#LiezelDeJager #WernerDeJager #JusticeForLiezel]
Werner de Jager will have to wait another 2 weeks behind bars to find out if his bail application was granted.
The Amanzimtoti Magistrate’s Court in KwaZulu-Natal heard the last closing arguments in his bail application on Tuesday, and Magistrate Zama Nyuswa reserved decision.
During the final statements on Monday, the court was informed that another defendant will shortly face trial alongside De Jager for the death of his wife.
Liezel’s body, formerly affiliated with the NG Suidkus church, was discovered on Oct. 13, 2021, in the driveway of the rectory home after she had gone jogging.
De Jager is also anticipated to be prosecuted and arrested for 2 further counts of murder.
These allegations stem from a car collision last year on the N1 highway near Kroonstad that killed two women.
According to the state, De Jager should have avoided driving while suffering from dementia.
As a result, the accusations of culpable homicide were changed to murder.
This was one of the reasons why the state contended that bail should be denied.
According to the authorities, De Jager will endanger not only himself, but also the general public and his in-laws.
Adv. André May, De Jager’s legal agent, said that nothing could be farther from the truth.
He believes De Jager has already demonstrated his ability to manage himself.
Furthermore, there is no direct evidence tying De Jager to Liezel’s murder, hence the state’s case is weak.
De Jager will stay in detention until Feb. 22
