Gun Shop Owner Mutilated Women, Stored Remains In Freezer
South African police also believe the Danish national was involved in his wife’s death.
Peter Frederiksen, a 63-year-old gun shop owner, was arrested in the central city of Bloemfontein in September after his wife Anna Matseliso Molise told police that he assaulted her and mutilated her genitals.
Molise, 28, was set to be the state’s key witness against Frederiksen before she was gunned down outside her house in Maseru, the capital of neighbouring Lesotho, a two-hour drive from Bloemfontein.
Police spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi confirmed Frederiksen faces charges of conspiracy to murder Matseliso, as well as three counts of assault, bigamy, and production and distribution of child pornography.
