Former Nigerian Olympic athlete, Ambrose Monye (pictured above), has been sentenced to life in prison in South Africa for the murder of 26 year old Channelle Henning (pictured right).

Monye, who participated in the Souelle Olympic game in 1988, is accused of killing Henning as she drove out after dropping her young son at the Morning Star Montessori Preschool in Faere Glen, East Pretoria South Africa on the 8th of November 2011. He and another accomplice, Andre Gouws, who was also sentenced to life in prison, were contracted to kill the woman by her estranged husband.

After denying their involvement in the shooting death for almost two years, the men finally confessed to being involved in the gruesome murder.

According to Andre Gouws testimony in court this morning, Channelle and her husband, Nick have been on a custody battle for their young son for a while. Nick then decided the best way to have full custody of his son was to permanently get rid of his wife. He then contacted Andre Gouws to help carry out the murder with a reward of a million rand if successfully done. Andre then contacted Monye to help facilitate the killing with a promise to pay him 50,000rand. Continue...

Ambrose then contracted two men, Gerhardus (Doepie) du Please and Willem (Tattoo or Pike) Pieterse who carried out the murder. The two men are already serving 18-year jail terms, following their guilty pleas to the murder charge.

Described by the investigative team as the kingpin of Pretoria's underworld, Ambrose has a history of being involved in murder cases. In 2011, he was arrested and later released in South Africa for allegedly beating a man to death. Ambrose runs a security firm in South Africa.
