Alleged murderer denied bail at Keetmanshoop

A 24-year-old man, accused of stabbing and killing another man on Saturday, has been denied bail in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate’s Court.
Court documents indicated that Arno Rooi made his first court appearance before Magistrate Unchen Konjore, who denied bail because police investigations are at an early stage. Bail was also denied because of the seriousness of the case and because the State fears that the accused will interfere with police investigations. The case was postponed to 02 October 2023 for further police investigations with Rooi indicating to the court that he will defend himself and plans to plead guilty to the charge of murder.
