It was first reported that a second attacker in the attempted hit was killed by Booysen in self-defence, but the charge sheet now alleges that it was Johannes who killed Michael Yon, his alleged accomplice. Yon is also the grandfather of Johannes’s child.
Yon’s family, including his daughter and Johannes’s ex-girlfriend, sat next to Johannes’s family in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s Court gallery.
State prosecutor Nathan Adriaanse told the court that there were currently two cases with a plan to merge them into a single docket. Two dates were proposed for bail hearings: December 11 and 12.
A detective, Capt Barker, originally opened the attempted murder dockets and on Tuesday Sea Point detective Kinnear brought the murder charge forward, more than two months after Johannes’s arrest.
