'Hitmen', Taxi Boss in Court for Murder of Defence Lawyer

Three suspects have appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on charges of the murder of top advocate Pete Mihalik. Mihalik was shot and killed outside Reddam House School in Cape Town, South Africa where he was dropping off his eight-year-old son. Mihalik was allegedly "deeply" tied to Cape Town's criminal underworld and reportedly attempted to resolve a protracted "turf war" between two factions allegedly controlled by Sea Point businessman Mark Lifman and Nafiz Modack, respectively.
