Grahamstown – Christopher Panayiotou’s bail appeal was dismissed by the High Court in Grahamstown on Tuesday.
“The appeal is dismissed,” Judge Nomathamsanqa Bheshe read out in court.
She did not read out the reasons for the dismissal.
Panayiotou allegedly hired Luthando Siyoli, 31, a bouncer in his employ at the Infinity club in Algoa Park, Port Elizabeth, to find a hitman, Sizwezakhe Vumazonke, 30, to kidnap and murder his wife.
Jayde was kidnapped on Tuesday, April 21, while waiting outside her complex in Kabega Park for her lift to Riebeek College Girls’ High School in Uitenhage, where she taught. Her body was found near KwaNobuhle, Uitenhage, the next day.
