THE Cape high court has reserved judgment in an appeal against the severity of sentence imposed on Dina Rodrigues and four others for the murder of baby Jordan-Leigh Norton.

A full bench comprising Acting Western Cape Judge-President Jeanette Traverso and judges Essa Moosa and Andre le Grange heard the appeals yesterday.

The murder of the six-month-old baby more than four years ago was master-minded by Rodrigues.

She paid her four accomplices R10000 to gain access to the infant's parental home by means of a fake courier delivery on June 15 2005. - Sapa
