WALVIS BAY – Murder accused siblings Azaan Madisia and Junior Mulundu have indicated, through their State legal representatives, they are ready to plead following their arrest over a year ago in connection with the murder of Shannon Wasserfall.
The duo is accused of murdering Wasserfall – a close friend of Madisia –in April last year, and reporting her missing afterwards.
Madisia allegedly carried out the evil deed and was assisted by Mulundu to dispose of Wasserfall’s body that was found in a shallow grave last year in the dunes close to Dunes Mall.
The two suspects have been without a lawyer after their previous lawyer Gilroy Kasper withdrew from the matter.
As a result, they applied for legal aid – and are now represented by Albert Titus and Tanya Klazen, respectively.
Titus and Klazen indicated on Monday their clients are ready to plead and will also apply for bail.
Prosecutor Maggi Shiyagaya confirmed she has received the submission but indicated the State will be opposing bail.
“The suspects face serious charges, and the State will still be opposing bail. However, a date for the bail hearing will be communicated to the legal representatives of the suspects after consultations with the deputy prosecutor general,” Shiyagaya said.
Magistrate Vicky Nicolaidis then postponed the case to next week Wednesday for Madisia and Mulundu to enter into plea.
