“FOCHVILLE — 20 February 2012 began as an ordinary day in the lives of David and Bernadette Hall. The Halls were milking cows on their farm, Buffelshoek, near Fochville. There they were overpowered by five black male attackers at 6am.
Bernadette was tied up and assaulted with a blunt object. David was less fortunate.
- After a fight with the robbers, who were just too many for him, he was finally on his knees. The lawn outside the dairy is where David breathed his last breath. (Bernadette testified in court that two shots were fired through his brain while he sat on his knees in front of his murderers).
