Two Bonteheuwel parents who were arrested on charges of killing their eight-month-old baby in November of 2020 appeared in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, February 25.
The parents, named Kathleen (31) and Ricardo (32) Isaacs were meant to proceed with their bail hearing, but this has been postponed until March.
Speaking to News24, National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said that the case has been postponed until March 11 so that Ricardo can find an attorney. “He had a Legal Aid lawyer, but he has now indicated that he wants a private lawyer,” the spokesperson said.
The Isaacs’ baby named Levi allegedly died after he sustained fatal head injuries caused by what is believed to be abuse from his parents.
He was declared dead after he was admitted to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.
