THE murder trial of Marcus Thomas and Kevin Townsend, the two American nationals implicated in the murder of 25-year-old Andre Heckmaier in 2011 will resume again next week.


Witnesses have already been testifying in the matter. Earlier this week, a man testified about the purchasing of a gun. According to him, the man who sold the gun allegedly used to kill Heckmaier approached him asking for a gun and his response was that he would see what he can do.

Today, another witness, a woman who was employed as an Assistant Manager a Backpackers’ Lodge in Windhoek told Judge Christie Liebenberg that Thomas, on 11 December 2010 emailed the lodge, requesting a booking.


“He specifically asked for a room with two beds, for two people. He then also indicated that the two would not mind sharing a bathroom. His booking was between 25 December 2010 to 9 January 2011,” she told the court.


The two men are accused of killing Heckmaier execution-style. It is the state’s case that the two men lured him to a quiet street in Klein Windhoek, where they allegedly shot him in close range while seated in his car.
