LAID TO REST: Lucinda Adonis from Bishop Lavis
A skollie from Bishop Lavis now faces a new string of charges after he was caught for allegedly murdering a 48-year-old mother.

Lucinda Adonis was buried by her family over the weekend while her alleged killer, Bradley Small, 26, made his second appearance in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Lucinda was killed during the early hours of 5 April, days after Small was given a vroumens pak by women in the community after he allegedly robbed a girl at gunpoint.

According to residents, Small is a member of the 28s gang who robs women and breaks into homes at night.

A 30-year-old mother, who cannot be identified, says a week before Lucinda was killed, she also reported Small to police for breaking into her home and sexually assaulting her four-year-old daughter.

Small is being represented by a private lawyer in court.

Standing in the dock, Small smiled as he glanced at the public gallery.

The case was postponed after it was found that his lawyer needed clarity on all the charges against him. The matter will be back before court on 15 May.

After his arrest, Lucinda’s relatives reported him to cops for allegedly sending skollies to intimidate them.

Police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, confirms that Small now faces charges of murder, sexual assault and intimidation.

Lucinda’s husband, Shaun Adonis, 47, said the family was trying their best to move on.

“Her funeral was on Saturday and so many people came out. We want justice for my wife.”

The couple was married for 26 years and have five children.
