Sentencing in the trial of convicted wife killer Christopher Panayiotou has been postponed.
The defence requested the postponement because it is awaiting a sentencing report.
The sentencing of Christopher Panayiotou and his accomplices got underway in the Port Elizabeth (PE) High Court on Friday, where Jayde Panayiotou's younger sister read out an emotional letter from the family.
Eyewitness News reporter Shamiela Fisher says the family is calling for a harsh punishment.
