A 22-YEAR-OLD Pietermaritzburg woman wept in court yesterday when told she would spend her best years in prison for helping her boyfriend to kill his brother.

Pietermaritz-burg high court Judge Kate Pillay sentenced Thandeka Zondi to 20 years in prison.

The judge said Zondi and her boyfriend, Siphesihle Mahlaba, took the law into their own hands when Siphesihle stabbed his sleeping brother Mondli.

Zondi pleaded guilty to Mondli's murder and her trial was separated from that of Siphesihle, whose trial starts next week.- Sapa
