A South African court has ruled that trial in the case of Anni Dewani, a Swede murdered on her honeymoon there in 2010, will start this week. This follows the determination that the man accused of gunning her down is fit to stand trial.

Defendant Xolile Mngeni has a brain tumor, but a medical examination has found that it will not alter the situation regarding his ability to understand the proceedings. He has been named as the gunman by his fellow accused Mziwamadoda Qwabe, who last week pleaded guilty to the murder, which he said was a botched kidnapping commissioned by Shrien Dewani, the new bride’s husband. Qwabe was given a 25 year prison sentence after his guilty plea.

Britain has approved the extradition of Shrien Dewani, but the London High Court has temporarily halted the process, citing mental health grounds.
