Scott-Crossley murder conviction set aside

Three appeal court judges on Friday set aside the life-imprisonment sentence of Mark Scott-Crossley, the man earlier convicted in the Phalaborwa Circuit Court of murder for throwing Nelson Oupa Chisale to lions in January 2004. The Supreme Court of Appeal, in a unanimous judgement, upheld an appeal by Scott-Crossley against his conviction for murdering Chisale.
