Khorixas man denied bail for allegedly stabbing ex-girlfriend 13 times

A Khorixas resident, Lourence Hoeb (31) bail after he stabbed his ex-girlfriend (29), 13 times with a knife at Palmwag on Saturday after an argument, at the Khorixas magistrate's court today.

Hoeb faces charges of Attempted Murder read with domestic violence Act of 2008.

The state has objected granting bail to the accused due to the seriousness of the offence and that it would not be in public interest to grant the accused bail. The state also feared that the Hoeb might interfere with witnesses and the ongoing Police investigation.

Hoeb opted to conduct his own defence and his case was postponed to 06 April for formal bail application and further police investigations.

Magistrate Sean Nangombe presided over the case while Public Prosecutor Kamwi Loveness Mpambo represented the state.
