After a prolonged trial, Judge Jacqueline Hendriques yesterday found Soni guilty on all six counts that included murder, conspiracy to murder, defeating the ends of justice (two counts) and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm (two counts).
The charges related to a barrage of attacks on Sewram and his family shortly after Soni suspected his wife, Kerusha, was having an extramarital relationship with Sewram.
Sewram was shot dead on May13, 2013, outside his surgery on Old Greytown Road.
Prior to this, three other men were found guilty of Sewram’s murder and were handed life sentences. They were Sabelo Dlamini, who admitted firing the fatal shots that killed Sewram; his accomplice, Mfaniseni Nxumalo; and former policeman Brian Treasurer, who was hired by Soni to carry out the killing.
