Two men have been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Stellenbosch University graduate Carl Schoombie.
Judge Robert Henney sentenced Brent Henry and Juane Jacobs to life behind bars for the 27-year-old's murder in the Western Cape High Court on Friday.
Schoombie died from head injuries sustained in an attack after leaving a Claremont nightclub in 2015.
In November 2015, the pair followed an Uber taxi that Schoombie and his three friends were travelling home in after a night out at Tiger Tiger.
Schoombie was admitted to hospital in a coma and died days later.
The brother of the deceased, Lee Schoombie, says he was always confident that the duo would be given a life sentence.
To the extent of our law, justice has been served.— Lee Schoombie, brother of late Carl Schoombie
He explains that the sentencing marks a bittersweet moment for his family.
It doesn't bring my brother back, but it's a comforting feeling knowing that.. there's no chance of them harming or destroying people's lives or families.— Lee Schoombie, brother of late Carl Schoombie
The brother reflected on the traumatic experience that his family faced following the attack in 2015.
They were obviously in an extreme rage and would not listen. They targeted my brother and beat him to death.— Lee Schoombie, brother of late Carl Schoombie
