Cape Town - The sentencing of Johannes Kana for the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen was postponed in the Swellendam Circuit Court on Wednesday.
SABC news reported that proceedings began on Wednesday for argument in mitigation of sentence, but court was postponed to Friday.
On Tuesday, Judge Patricia Goliath found Kana guilty of raping and murdering Booysen.
Booysen was raped and disembowelled, and died in Tygerberg Hospital, Cape Town, on the afternoon of Saturday, February 2.
Kana was seen with Booysen outside a Bredasdorp pub in the early hours of that day.
Pieter du Toit, for Kana, said his client was under the influence of alcohol and the crime was not planned.
He also reportedly said Kana had admitted guilt and apologised, and was also helpful with the investigation.
Du Toit asked that sentencing should run concurrently. The State has asked for a life sentence for both counts. - Sapa
