State wants life sentence for convicted wife killer Rob Packham

  |   Knysnanews

CAPE TOWN - The State has called for a life sentence for convicted wife killer, Rob Packham, describing his actions as cold-blooded, callous and selfish.

"The accused simply removed her from his life, as she in all probability no longer fitted in with what he wanted", senior State prosecutor Susan Galloway told the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Packham had been married to his wife for more than thirty years, but the couple had been having marital problems because of his infidelities, before her disappearance on February 22, last year.

She did not arrive for work at the usual time of 7.30am and her body was later found in the boot of her burnt-out BMW near the Diep River train station....
