Nico Henning in Hot Water…  

 

 

 
 
Rustenburg – Referring back to the headlines of the Platinum Weekly, 18 November 2011… “A well-known and beloved former Rustenburg resident, Chanelle Henning (26), was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Faerie Glen by a masked motorcyclist. This adored former pupil of Selly Park Secondary School was shot moments after she dropped her son Benjamin at Morningstar Montessori Crèche, in what Police described as a “hit”. Since then, this highly sensitive and widely-followed case has developed exponentially… as her husband is now viewed as the Number 1 Suspect & “Mastermind”…

The Hawks have declined to divulge any further information on the idea that Nico Henning (husband) could be the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, Chanelle (Jan 19). However, on Tuesday (Feb 17), it emerged that Nico had allegedly made a phone call in a bid to delay the hit on his estranged wife. One of the five men arrested for the murder of mother Chanelle Henning received this call…

 

  Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela confirmed that Nico was now a suspect. However, he added that releasing any further information could jeopardise the case. It was further unclear why he had not been arrested or why the police had only now decided to disclose his alleged involvement in the matter. The connection emerged in the bail application of Nico’s close friend, Andre Gouws. Police investigator Petrus Van der Spuy told the court Nico called Gouws during his meeting with the alleged assassins.

Van der Spuy was testifying in the State’s bid to prevent Gouws from getting bail. Van der Spuy told the court that phone records indicated that Gouws received the call from Nico Henning. Gouws’ bail application will be heard later in January. Nico was not available for comment. The Hennings son was in the middle of a custody battle at the time of his mother’s murder.

The couple had previously been embroiled in a custody dispute, which Chanelle won.
