Convicted murderer Henri van Breda‘s application for leave to appeal his conviction and sentencing will be heard in the Cape Town High Court on Tuesday.

Van Breda was found guilty in May of murdering his parents and older brother, as well as the attempted murder of his younger sister.

Van Breda was sentenced to three life terms in June, for the murders of his parents and brother and an additional 15 years for the attempted murder of his sister.

The court found that Van Breda had attacked his family members with an axe at their home in the De Zalze estate at Stellenbosch in 2015.

While handing down judgment, Judge Siraj Desai said Henri van Breda showed no remorse for his actions.
