Murder accused, Mark Warona Zinde, is expected to appear in the Brits Regional Court on Friday in connection with the murder of his mother, TV personality Hope Zinde.
During his last appearance on Monday, the National Prosecuting Authority said he would now have a court application issued to assess his mental capacity.
If the magistrate grants the application, he will be referred to an institution for the evaluation.
Zinde was arrested in connection with his mother’s murder in Pecanwood.
Zinde senior’s body was found in the boot of her Range Rover on Saturday after a family friend went looking for her.
The friend allegedly saw the son peeping through the curtains of their home at the estate.
According to police reports, the family friend had tried unsuccessfully since Wednesday to make contact with Zinde with the son refusing to open the door.
He only opened the door when the police arrived. They then noticed bloody marks leading from the bathroom to the garage.[Source: News24]
