Rob Packham found guilty of wife's murder

Packham was arrested in February last year after Gill's body was discovered in the boot of her burnt-out BMW at Diep River train station.

In handing down judgment, Judge Elize Steyn called Packham's testimony 'suspicious and implausible' and questioned why he had failed to report his wife missing.
During the trial, the court heard how the couple had been having marital issues at the time of Gill's murder.
Packham was also found guilty of a charge of defeating or obstructing the administration of justice.
