Stella Hostel murders: Xander Bylsma found guilty


A teenager who was arrested for a double murder at the Stella High School Hostel two years ago was found guilty in the Mmabatho High Court on Monday.

Xander Bylsma, who is now 20-years-old, killed his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend Sharnelle Hough and her 17-year-old friend Marna Engelbrecht.

Their bodies were found hanging on the school’s dormitory premises by a matron at the school in Vryburg.

Hough was found hanging from the staircase balustrade, whilst Engelbrecht was found in an upstairs bathroom.

A date for sentencing has not yet been set.
