Mulalo Sivhidzho, daughter-in-law of former City Press editor Mathatha Tsedu, was sentenced to life in prison today.

The woman, who hired two men to kill her husband Avhatakali Netshisaulu who was burned to death in his car just over four years ago, sat stone faced in the dock as Acting Judge Naren Pandya handed down sentence.

When they heard the sentence, those in the public gallery burst into spontaneous applause.

Aside from life in prison for the murder, Sivhizdo was sentenced to an additional five years for kidnapping and an additional three years for malicious damage to property.

Her two co-accused were also sentenced to life behind bars.
