Burger and Jacobs were arrested by members of the Nelspruit Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit in March after Burger allegedly colluded with Jacobs to assassinate her husband. According to police, Burger hired a hit man whom she met around Nelspruit, who was offered R15 000 to commit the crime.

The two will re-appear in the Nelspruit Regional Court next month.
