As the Western Cape High Court heard of most of the “big loves” in Jason Rohde’s life, there was clearly one love that is”big” that trumped all others whenever their spouse, Susan, was killed, a judge stated during Rohde’s sentencing for murder.
“this is the tale of cancerous self-love. The love on your own,” Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe stated on Wednesday.
“for the duration of murdering your lady and establishing the scene that she had taken her life that is own other interests, desires and care mattered other compared to those of your.”
Rohde ended up being on Wednesday sentenced to a very good two decades in prison.
He received 18 years when it comes to murder fee and 5 years for beating the ends of justice by staging the committing suicide, three of which will run simultaneously aided by the phrase when it comes to murder fee.
Salie-Hlophe said the aggravating facets were therefore “extreme and shocking” which they justified exceeding the 15-year minimal jail term for murder.
Rohde, 50, showed up emotionless as an officer handcuffed him and took him back off towards the cells.
The few was in fact going to Rohde’s work seminar during the Spier resort in July 2016 whenever Susan ended up being discovered dead within their resort restroom.
