Axe parolee appears for stabbing wife

Johannesburg - A man out on parole after killing three people with an axe in 1999 appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Thursday for allegedly killing his wife.

Dressed in a grey jacket and black jeans, Mario Allers, 42, looked at Magistrate Delize Smith as he took the oath shortly after 11:00.

Court proceedings were delayed earlier on Thursday morning as Allers failed to respond when he was called to the dock.

He allegedly killed his wife Carol, 51, at their house in Randparkrif, Randburg, last Wednesday.

According to a Beeld report, she was stabbed three times in her back and once in her arm.

Allers appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Friday and applied for legal aid.

In 1999, Allers, then 27, was arrested for the murder of his mother, grandmother, and best friend.

He killed them with an axe at the family home in the Bluff, Durban.

Despite the findings of the district surgeon that Allers was mentally unstable and unfit to stand trial, and that he suffered from drug-induced schizophrenia, he was convicted.

Just goes to prove that the rope must be brought back. No repeat offences and saves a lot of tax payer's money.

why was he given parole?

Call me psycho but this guy should have been tortured and then hung just for his own mother's killing. No murderer should ever be granted parole because no murderer should be alive once convicted!!!!!

Just proof that some cannot survive outside free free food...etc etc etc. I do agree we all need 2nd chances in life, but this clearly proof that this guy will NEVER be able to mean something to anything in life other than the dead. This is a typical example of one that would do no better any other place in this world than on death row!

After killing three wonderful people in 1999 and spending all the time in jail to recover from your drug problem and remorse, which he clearly did not do just to come out of jail and kill again………..really he should be locked up for ever and ever, if you can kill your mother and blame the drugs and you don’t learn from that you can kill anybody
