A guilty verdict for a South African man in the shooting death of honeymooning bride Anni Dewani.

BBC: “Xolile Mngeni has denied the charge. Anni Dewani's British husband Shrien Dewani has denied any involvement in her killing and is fighting extradition to South Africa.”

In 2010, Anni Dewani and her husband were kidnapped near Cape Town. Mrs. Dewani’s body was later found with a gunshot wound to the neck. (VIDEO VIA CHANNEL 4 NEWS)

Others accused along with now-convicted Xolile Mngeni had said it was Anni Dewani’s husband who put them up to the murder, which was meant to look like a car-jacking. Mr. Dewani denies that. Now, Sky News reports...

“The spotlight will be thrown straight back to Shrien Dewani... He maintains his innocence, saying he was set up for this murder and certainly there is CCTV footage of the couple kissing and cuddling in the hours before Anni’s death.”

According to the BBC, Mr. Dewani was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, and his legal team has asked that the court proceedings be delayed a year so he can recover.

As for Mngeni, he denied the charges against him, including illegal possession of a gun in addition to the murder. (VIDEO VIA THE TELEGRAPH)

Two other men have already been jailed in connection to Mrs. Dewani’s murder. Her husband faces charges including murder and obstructing the administration of justice.
