Teen who helped girlfriend strangle her mom will soon know fate

09 December 2015, 09:24 Jenna Etheridge, News24

Cape Town – One of performer Rosemary Theron's convicted killers should soon know his fate.

Nineteen-year-old Kyle Maspero appeared in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday for sentencing arguments.

The State called a probation officer and Theron's uncle, Anthony Redelinghuys, to testify in aggravation of sentence.

The defence did not call any witnesses.

Maspero recently pleaded guilty to helping kill Theron, 39, in her Clovelly home on March 7 2013.

Her daughter, Maspero's ex-girlfriend, Phoenix Racing Cloud Theron, is already serving an effective 15 years in jail in terms of a plea agreement.

As part of his guilty plea last month, Maspero described how he and Phoenix counted down four minutes as he held a rope tightly around Theron's throat.

He said he recoiled when she emitted a "huge sigh", but Phoenix reassured him that the sound was merely "trapped air".

Maspero admitted that he had known the difference between right and wrong at the time, despite his copious consumption of dagga and methamphetamines (tik).
