Serial Killer - gave his heart to Jesus - May Never Go Free

By Janice Ambrose     May 3, 2007 in Crime
An up-date on Jimmy Maketta, the serial killer/rapist, that I reported on yesterday, appeared to-day for sentencing on 16 counts of murder and 19 of rape.
Judge Abie Motala, said this dangerous criminal, Jimmy Maketta, would be detained in prison for 25 years. He would then be brought before the High Court again, for a judge to assess whether he is suitable to be released back into community. This means, Maketta will never be eligible for parole, and that his release from prison, will depend on a ruling judge, and not on prison authorities.
Many people attending the trial did not realise the significance of his sentence and women from Phillipi shouted "We're still in bondage because its our children who get killed. We're still waiting for justice".
A woman ran out of the court screaming in anger and swearing when she heard judgement. And, crowds of people from Phillpi protested on the steps outside the High Court, chanting slogans and talking to the media.
The judge praised the investigating officer, Captain Jonathon Morris, of the organised crime unit.
