The man implicated in the assassination of detective Charl Kinnear has also been linked to an attempted hit on a prominent Cape Town lawyer William Booth.

Zane Kilian was arrested after detective Charl Kinnear was gunned down outside his Bishop Lavis home last month.

His bail application was postponed on Monday after additional charges were added charge sheet.

The Belville Regional Court heard that Kilian is now also linked to the attempted killing of William Booth earlier this year.

He's facing additional charges for his alleged involvement in the attempted murder of Booth, including conspiracy to commit murder charge and a count of fraud.

Kilian submitted documentation stating that he is a registered private investigator.

However, the NPA says it has found that the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority (PSIRA) registration certificate submitted by Kilian is fraudulent, reports News24's Kyle Cowan.

Kilian is charged with conspiracy to murder for tracking detective Kinnear's cellphone for a couple of months leading up to the assassination and on the day of the actual shooting.

Today Kilian was also charged with several offences for also tracking the phone of advocate William Booth.

So far he has told the court that he received instructions from a man named Mohammed to track this number. He says it was allegedly part of a marital despite. No further details are coming out at this stage.

I'm sure that police are asking some quite serious questions of Kilian to find out exactly who paid him, who hired him and who he was taking instructions from.

At the same time, Kilian's defence lawyer, Eric Breyer, says his client could be facing more charges, reports EWN's Kevin Brandt.

There's also talks that he was involved in the tracking of other prominent people here in Cape Town.

Kilian's defence lawyer, Eric Breyer, says he doesn't rule out that more charges will be added.
