A second suspect was arrested and made his first court appearance in connection with the murder of Shannon Wasserfall.
Wasserfall’s remains were found in a shallow grave on 6 October in the vicinity of the new Narraville turn-off after she went missing in April 2020.
Steven Junior Mulundu (22) was charged with murder and defeating the course of justice.
According to deputy commissioner Kauna Shiwambi, he surrendered himself to the police at the Narraville police station.
“According to the suspect, he was allegedly called by his sister Azaan to help her dispose of Wasserfall’s body.”
Azaan Madisia (28), Wasserfall’s best friend and the godmother of her child, was the first suspect to be arrested in the murder.
In a brief appearance before Magistrate Vicky Nicolaidis, she granted the order for the charges against Mulundu to be joined with that of Madisia.
“Bail at this stage it is denied. Counsel for the defence will explain to his client his rights in terms of bail.”
The case was postponed to 7 December for further investigations. On that date, Mulundu will appear next to Azaan Madisia.
The state was represented by Maggy Shiyaga with Gilroy Kasper appearing for Mulundu.
