Zane Kilian was expected to make his bail bid in the Belville Regional Court on Monday when the court was informed of additional charges that had been added. Investigators on Monday said they believed Kilian, the man who is believed to be linked to the death of detective Kinnear, is also linked to an attempted hit on a prominent attorney.
Kilian has been in custody for more than a month and was expected to appear in court today for his bail hearing. The court however heard that another charge of conspiracy to commit a murder and a count of fraud have been added to his charge sheet. Both charges were added for his alleged involvement in the attempted killing of William Booth, an attorney, earlier this year.
Kilian is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Tuesday to face the new charges against him. The fraud charge relates to documentation allegedly outlining his registration as a private investigator. Eric Breyer, Kilian’s defence attorney, said that more charges had not been ruled out.
Five suspects were charged with attempted murder of the prominent defence attorney, William Booth earlier this year. Booth was unharmed after two men wearing surgical masks fired at him at his Higgovale home. Kilian is now facing charges for involvement in the attempted hit.
