Anni dewani killer 20121119

Xolile Mngeni, the man accused of killing Swedish honeymooner Anni Dewani, walks with a Zimer frame as he arrives into the Cape Town's High Court on November 19, 2012, to hear judgment. Mngeni has suffered from a brain tumor, which was removed before the case started. Mngeni claimed innocence in the November 2010 killing but admitted to his palm print having been found on the car in which Dewani's lifeless body was found in a poor Cape Town township. State prosecutor told Mngeni that his claims of not being at the murder scene were lies, as witnesses had testified otherwise and claimed that he had pulled the trigger. The 25-year-old had also been found in possession of items taken from Dewani and the honeymooning couple's taxi driver and had pointed out key details of the slaying to police after his arrest, prosecutor said.
