A security guard convicted of robbing and killing a Pretoria teenage dancer was yesterday sentenced to life imprisonment by the North Gauteng high court.

Aaron Mashishi, 27, robbed Estee van Rensburg, 19, of her belongings before shooting her at her Faerie Glen home in March last year.

He was jailed for life for the murder, 15 years for robbery and three years for theft.

Judge Celeste Potwall said Mashishi planned the robbery and murder.

"You knew she would be all on her own so you killed her in broad daylight. You loaded the goods into the car and went back to work as if nothing had happened," said Judge Potwall.

She said Mashishi was employed to protect the community but he committed a callous crime.

Mashishi worked for a security company hired by Van Rensburg's father Koos to protect their home.
