A South African man has been found guilty of shooting honeymoon tourist Anni Dewani in 2010.

Prosecutors said Xolile Mngeni was hired by Mrs Dewani’s British husband Shrien Dewani to carry out the killing, which was made to look like a car hijacking in Cape Town’s impoverished Gugulethu township.

In August Mngeni’s accomplice Mziwamadoda Qwabe pleaded guilty to charges over the murder.

Mr Dewani is fighting extradition to South Africa and continues to deny he orchestrated the killing.

Judge Robert Henney ruled Mngeni was guilty of killing 28-year-old Mrs Dewani.
