WINDHOEK: The continuation of the trial of two men accused of robbing and murdering an elderly resident of Okahandja some 11 years ago, will resume in the Windhoek High Court tomorrow.
The two men – Joseph Gavin Gariseb, 29, and 30-year-old Deon Garoeb – stand accused of murdering 79-year-old Okahandja resident Ludwig Franz Wojatschek in his home at the town between 14 and 15 September 2002.
The proceedings of the trial were this morning remanded until Friday this week because one of the lawyers representing the accused persons is involved in another case, which is also being heard in the High Court today.
This case could unfortunately not proceed today as planned because defence lawyer Brownwell Uirab who is representing accused Gariseb is involved in another case, said High Court Judge Naomi Shivute who is presiding over the matter.
According to a summary of substantial facts contained in the charge sheet, Wojatschek was found dead in his house at Okahandja in September 2002.
He was allegedly badly assaulted and died from injuries he sustained to his head.
