Particulars of the charge are that the quintet murdered the Latchmans during the course of or in the furtherance of robbery, committed on the family on July 4, 2019 at Better Hope (North) ECD.

Police said the motive of the murder was robbery and not an execution.

Police information technology experts had enhanced security camera footage of the gunmen who fled the scene after killing the Latchmans.

An autopsy performed on Aaron Latchman revealed that he sustained multiple gunshot injuries while his daughter sustained a single gunshot injury. The man was shot thrice during a scuffle in his yard.

The bandits appeared to have been familiar with Aaron Latchman’s routine and were reportedly waiting near his home.
