41-year-old Moekwa Mphuti has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing gilfriend after catching her cheating with another man, identified as Sergeant Tshehisa Mokoena.  

Acting judge Sehapi Motloung, at the Free State High Court, pointed out that jealousy was no basis for acting irrationally.

He said it was expected that people would be disappointed in life but it was not a reason to kill.

"The accused, after seeing the dead woman having sex with another man, broke the window and when that did not work, went away and met Tshehisa Mokoena to talk about the broken window.

"I take it that the actions of the accused did not amount to a fit of rage.

"It happened after a passage of time," said Motloung.



"I sentence the accused in count one of murder to 10 years and in count two of theft to one year in prison. The sentences will run concurrently," he added.

The court heard that Mphuti, who was engaged to Refilwe Moloi, hit her with a stone on the head on 26 October.

Thereafter he beat her with a stick repeatedly, minutes after witnessing her and Tshehisa Mokoena having sex in the bush.

Mphuti dragged Refilwe's body away from the scene and covered it with branches.

On Wednesday, Mphuti was crying. Overwhelmed by emotion, he apologised to the court.

Refilwe's aunt Nico Moloi said that she was happy justice had been served.
